Looking for a tough challenge around the beautiful Lake District roads at the end of April, with a reward of homemade cakes and endless tea, and all proceeds raised going to charity, then the Team Townend Challenge is the one for you.

Now in its 7th year, previous riders have helped Team Townend raise over £55,000 for their chosen charity, RoadPeace, in memory of Christian and Niggy Townend who were killed in a road crash whilst out cycling in 2010, and the event now sees over 300 riders taking part in this popular locally organised sportive. With two course options available, be sure to bring some big sprockets as you take in some of the most scenic and spectacular parts of the Lake District, as well as some of its most challenging roads, including the Whinlatter, Honister and Newlands passes.
