Challenge yourself to ride one of our stunning routes and raise money to help support the life-changing work of Seashell.

You can come along and ride knowing that your entry fee is going to a very worthwhile cause or go one step further and use the sponsorship form to help raise even more money to buy specialist bicycles, so our students get the chance to experience the thrill of cycling.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, every penny of your entry fee and any money you raise comes directly to the charity.

Choose from an entry level 50km short route through Cheshire lanes, ideal for first time sportive rider.  A 75km medium route, giving a great taste of peak district roads and some climbs. A longer more challenging 100km of climbing. Or, if you’re up for the big challenge, tackle our epic leg-busting 170km very long route. All routes are fully signed, have GPX digital route files, fully supported with feed stops and mobile mechanic support.

Whichever your chosen route you will be treated to fabulous views of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire whilst raising money for a brilliant local cause.
