Limited to 1,000 riders, open for entries now!

The Velo29 Tour Of The Pennines, our biggest Sportive and one of the most important new events in the 2015 calendar!

The event is based from Barnard Castle and takes in a choice of 2 Tour Routes, 66.9km and 129km. Both routes take in some of the most picturesque, exciting and little ridden roads in this wonderful area. Every mile of the New Etape route is carefully considered to make this event the one you’ll remember from 2015. There are 2 KOM climbs on the Short route and a whopping 6 on the Long. They are tough routes but the emphasis is on a well-designed, challenging and enjoyable ride, not on sending I up every climb we can find in the chase of a headline statistic. This is a ride everyone can enjoy.
