Entries are steadily arriving for next years event & it looks as though we'll end up in excess of the previous largest entry which we limited to 600---There is now no upper limit on the number of entrants as with the new organisation we can easily cope with 1,000+ --For a background look at what goes into the organisation of this event go to the British Cycling website & click on to Polkadot Challenge where there is a short film of last years helpers setting up & working on the day--Put this event in your diary for 2014 SUNDAY 25 MAY--you will have a cracking day out in the Derbyshire Peaks.

Fond memories of this when I lived up north... one of the not so many true Granfondo left with a reasonable entry fee
