On Sunday September the 13th 2015, Leek Cyclists Club will once again be staging the Legbreaker Sportive in Memory of Club Member Paul Derbyshire who sadly passed away in 2012.The 80 Mile Sportive which has been a great success over the years is renowned as one of the best in the country, with it being dubbed the “Hell of the Moorlands” mainly because of the amount of tough steep Moorland climbs which you have to conquer to complete the ride. The ride takes in some of the best scenery the Staffordshire Moorlands & The Peak District has to offer and includes steep climbs out of Ilam, Hollinsclough and the famous Gun Hill.
For more information on the route please download the below files.
