Pure Peak Grit Cycling Challenge

Tomorrow a group of serious cyclists are undertaking a new event – Pure Peak Grit. This event has been organised by Alaina Beacall who you may remember as the singing cyclist in TransAm last year. Alaina is one of our ambassadors and for good reason, she is constantly challenging herself. Alaina is fundraising to help conserve the incredible landscape of the Peak District.

Alaina will be riding her custom painted Vaaru MPA.

Starting at 8pm on Friday 12th July a small group of female cyclists will ride this route.
