The Three Peaks route

 

38-ish miles
80% trail / 20% tarmac
2800ft ascent / descent
Tougher than you think!

Forest trails, hillside paths, quiet country lanes, open fields, a wobbly bridge, riverbanks, cows, wooden staircases, disused railway lines, a golf course, historic gravestones, extinct volcanoes, flipping awesome views, the odd bit of mud, okay, maybe a lot of mud, spooky woods, the Playpark of Doom, battlefields, villages, more staircases, more views, more riverbanks, more fields, more cows, that wobbly bridge again, some horrible tarmac, and finally a cheeky wee uphill sprint finish!

And a beer at the end of course  :-)
