Bostin' Peaks Sportive 2021

The Bostin' Peak Sportive is the original Bostin' cycling event and was featured on the 2016 Channel 5 celebrity cycling TV programme, "Tour de Celeb".

The 2021 running of the event sees us move to a new HQ and more inclusive routes.

By moving our HQ further North we can now showcase the delights of the Peak District to all our riders and not just to the Gold and Silver route riders as in previous years. We have also taken the opportunity of shortening the length of our Gold route, to make it less severe and attractive to more riders, although it still remains a distinct bostin' challenge.

Gold route - 75 miles / 120km

Silver route - 60 miles / 100km

Bronze route - 40 miles / 65km

This year the Bostin' Peaks Sportive will be based at the Rocester Football Club, just North East of Uttoxeter, and all three routes begin by heading further East than normal through Cubley and Alkmonton and on along the Roman road called, appropriately, Longlane before turning North through Kirk Langley and Mercaston. Here they begin to rise up to Hulland

Ward and then on to Carsington Water and the first feed station of the day at Hognaston, for some much needed refreshment.

After a brief stop, all riders turn left out of the feed station and continue heading up and North. At Bradbourne the Bronze riders turns East and head off towards a ford (we recommend using the bridge!) and riding up over Wibben Hill, through roaming farm animals, and on to the picture-postcode village of Tissington and then onwards to Thorpe.

The Gold and Silver route, meanwhile, continue North climbing up through Brassington and to Longcliffe into the upland countryside of the Peak District.

Shortly afterwards, the Silver route turns West towards Newhaven and then on to the second feed station at Warslow. The Gold riders continue North through Elton, past Robin Hood's Stride, and on to Youlgreave before dropping on to the Long Rake, with its glorious views, and forward to Parsley Hay. After Parslay Hay the Gold route riders turn North up through the market town of Longnor before following the Ridge, with spectacular views, before also arriving at the feed station for some sustenance and perhaps a well deserved sit down. After the feed station the riders descend down into the Manifold Valley before climbing out up to Stanshope and on to the attractive village of Ilam and then up to Thorpe to rejoin the Bronze route.

All riders, now reunited, head South across the parkland at Okeover Hall, and more roaming animals, then on to Mayfield before heading, along the River Dove, towards Rocester and the finish line.

Three wonderful routes will make a great day out in the Peak District!
