Description of Event:

The Crossing is an epic cross country adventure that takes in the hills, dales and moors of the north of england over 3 days. Starting in Whitehaven, Lancashire, the three days of riding mix road with trail, off road and some more serious technical and single track riding to finish in Scarborough on the North sea coast. You travel across the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, so a fantastic range of countryside, along with many big hills and steep climbs. Long days in the saddle are supported by half way pit stops and well equipped camp sites to rest weary legs and feed up for the next day. Rat Race have been running the event for a few years, so it is really well organised throughout, well waymarked and you get plenty of good pre-race information before the event.

Location of Event: Whitehaven, Lancashire ; Penrith, Lancashire ; Northallerton, North Yorkshire ; Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Next Event Date: 2nd - 4th June 2017

Cost: Range from £300 each depending on timing of booking.
