You can choose your distance, you can choose your start time and you can even choose your start location when you take on this challenge. You can choose from:

Day Ride (60 miles):  Manchester to Leeds or Leeds to Manchester – this ride will start on the morning of the 20th September at 9am. There will be start lines in both Manchester and Leeds  so you can decide what direction you take.
