After the Covid-19 lockdown, certain Perms are back from 1st August. However, you should still observe any restrictions about carrying out group activities. No cycling to Barnard Castle!
Our traditional cafes and shops might not all still be available. Please support those that are, but you should carry sufficient supplies in case they are not. Please pass any updates about controls to the Organiser.
The Permanent version of the Staffordshire Peak Calendar event with one slight difference - there are no Info controls so we just drop into Bollington for a shop receipt.
This ride climbs all the way (except when you are descending steeply) so you will need good legs and even better brakes, but the views are well worth the effort.
See Kettleshulme, the Goyt valley, Axe Edge, the Manifold Valley at Wetton, and the Mermaid. Be warned that it's quite isolated in places (except perhaps Tittesworth on a sunny weekend) and exposed, so make sure you carry suitable clothing and have some bonk rations in your saddlebag.
Not all controls have 24/7 options so you should choose your start time accordingly. You could also record your progress as a GPX file and submit that for validation.
