The ride of a lifetime

The Lloydy certainly isn't a watered down version of The Penny. It may be shorter, but it packs the same punch with the same amount of climbing per kilometre. You will still ride many of the very hardest climbs which feature in the Penny.

We've left no stone unturned to pull together a hugely testing route which will be a very tough day out for newer riders. The opening three climbs are really tough and all feature extended steep sections. Try and recover where you can as the chunk of rolling terrain around the Long Causeway will be a serious energy sapper.

If you've got that far, it's just the small matter of Horsehold and it's 28% ramps to finish. There is no shame in getting off and walking but grit your teeth and remember, the pain is temporary.
