This year’s Mary Townley loop challenge will take place on Sunday 15 September 2013.
Challenge your legs, lungs and possibly other parts of your anatomy in possibly one of the more gruelling mountain bike events. See the West Pennine Moors as you take on 47 miles of bridleway, and 2.5km of ascent and descent.
The challenge will be the same as 2011, riding clockwise from Fearns High School in Waterfoot, with refreshment stations, bike and rider recovery if you don’t make it, and general encouragement from the Team as you go past.
Once you get back to the finish, there’ll be the usual hot drinks and masses of cake to enjoy. We hope to have the sports masseuses once again for those with achey legs that need attention, plus we’ll bring a jetwash along for you to clean up. There’ll also be showers if you need them.
Can I just point out that this is the tenth anniversary of the Mary Towneley Loop – so it is a bit of a special occasion! Also new this year – we will record your time for you and publish it on the web, so you see how you did. There’ll also be the usual dose of photos we take posted online to download for free as well.
Entries now open!!!!
