The long option looks a bit of a challenge?? Especially as The Struggle (Kirkstone Pass from Ambleside) is the last major climb.

The Chris Walker Cycle Challenge is either an 11 mile undulating loop with one long climb (short route), a 22 mile challenge which has two serious climbs(medium route) or a mammoth 85 mile loop around the beautiful Lake District taking in most of the high mountain passes that the Lakes has to offer(long route). These include Honister, Hardknot, Wrynose and the hard way up Kirkstone pass from Ambleside! Roll out time will be from 08.30am and heads out of the town of Keswick onto the first climb of the day (Honister pass which is the Medium & Long route only. The Short Route avoids this).
The ride starts and finishes at Keswick Adventure Centre ,who have kindly offered the use of their facilities including toilets/car parking etc. They have also arranged the broom wagon (Long Option Only). The Challenge is not only a tough day of cycling, but you will be rewarded with some amazing views too.
