New mountain biking event for Peel

Fri, 26 Feb 2021

A new mountain biking event will take place in Peel this Spring.

The Cycle 360 Corrin’s Folly Challenge will take place on Sunday, April 11.

The endurance mountain biking time trial challenge will be open to anyone aged 13 or over with a total of four different classes to enter (juvenile, youth, junior and senior).

The idea originated from Peel commissioner, Ian Davison, who said: ‘Many of us in the west have looked at Corrin’s Folly on top of Peel Hill and thought about riding up to it, while many cyclists have ridden down Peel Hill.

‘However, it’s very different to pit your legs against the climb and your skill and nerve against the fast-flowing downhill sections on a designated route in race conditions.

‘At a lap distance of 3.3 miles and a climb of about 450ft, this is a challenge suitable for anyone but one where you can choose how much of a challenge you want to make it."

The event will be run under British Cycling regulations with a British Cycling Commissaire overseeing the event.
