The 2018 Winking Sheep
The North Pennines presents a challenging terrain for any cyclist because of all the sharp climbs and descents. Any rider capable of meeting the challenge of a category 4 Sportive can now enter the British Cycling registered 2018 Winking Sheep Cycle Sportive. Entry for riders is now available at http://britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/157396/The-Winking-Sheep-Sportive.
Three routes are offered this year by the organisers.
- The Lamb is a 55 Mile route
- The Shearling is a new 75 mile route
- The Winking Sheep is the 90 mile route
Riders can enter for a very reasonable £25. The routes are open road and marshalled with three refreshment stations therefore whatever the weather the sportive will be a great event. The Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team will receive a donation of any surplus.
However good a rider you are except the challenge and book now and bring your friends.
