Additional Event Information

This approx 12 mile long route ascends steeply through woodland above the reservoirs, the route begins with expansive views closely followed by an enjoyable canter section in open moorland. Making a descent back to water level, a circuit is made around the Derwent and Howden reservoirs. Take in the iconic Dams which were used to test the Dambusters bouncing bombs and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the surrounding countryside with a mixture of moorland vistas, woodland and waterside views. Worth noting: Sections of the route are steep with unlevel rocky going both upwards and downwards. Access lane sections of the route are shared with vehicular traffic. This may include occasional buses or motorhomes. Much of the route is multi-user so expect to meet cyclists, runners and walkers with dogs or buggies. Livestock may be encountered alongside or on the route. The route includes the crossing of a stone bridge which has low sides. This can be avoided with a ford option instead. Due to continued tree felling works throughout the valley it is possible there may be chainsaw noise and movement of machinery. Should this lead to closures of sections of the route diversions may be made. Group size is limited to 6+guide. Places are �35/ horse and rider combination. All riders must have their own BHS Gold or equivalent Public Liability Insurance. Under 18s are welcome but must be accompanied on the ride by an adult. Bookings can be made using the following link:
