Welcome to the fourth running of the Tour of the Pennines IV Hilly Classic. This year we have three routes to choose from. We have introduced a shorter route for the less fit and less experienced riders. An intermediate route for the seasoned sportive campaigners and we have increased the length of the long route to make it a bit more of a challenge for the hardened sportive riders.
Once again we will be starting at the Radclyffe Athletics Centre in Chadderton, Oldham. The routes takes the riders around the Saddleworth Moors passing through Delph the setting for the film Brass starring Ewan McGregor, Dobcross the setting for Yanks film starring Richard Gere, it also passes through Last of the Summer Wine Country. There are fantastic views, Challenging Climbs, Fast Descents, Winding Valley roads and some Stunning Scenery.
We will have a professional photographer on hand to get those action shots and Sportive Nation the who have a fabulous new bike shop in Hazel Grove will be on hand to sort out those mechanical problems.

There is plenty of free parking at the Athletic Stadium. Please keep the noise down to a minimum so as not to upset the people living near the stadium. This is a great venue we do not want to lose it.
We use a Black Arrow on a Florescent Yellow background to sign the route. We also mark the roads with a RED arrow using temporary spray. The Route signs are put out just before the events and are checked on the morning of the event. We also have a vehicle that proceeds the riders making sure the signs are still in place.
Along with most other sportive events we do not do refunds. We do allow you to transfer to one of our other events if you are unable to ride.
Events are organised by Team Torelli Cycling Club.
