Join our incredible Dark Peak Challenge - an extreme road cycling challenge.
 
The Wakefield Hospice Sportive: The Dark Peak began in 2013 and is based on highlights of the 2014 Tour de France Day 2 Route. 

We have three routes Extreme 72 miles, Hard 48 miles and Moderate 23 miles.
 
All routes start in Wakefield and head west. The Hard and Extreme routes head to Huddersfield to take on, arguably, the toughest climb in Yorkshire and England - Holme Moss. The Extreme Route goes on to Glossop before taking on Snake Pass and then The Strines.
 
The punishing routes last year was praised by cyclist last year for be a gruelling but highly satisfying challenge. Read about it by clicking here.
 
The Moderate 23 mile route is a challenging alternative closer to home which takes in the beautiful local countryside while offering a high level of challenge. T
