All three Rise Above routes have been tweaked slightly from the 2015 event but they will again spread across Cheshire and North Wales. Rise Above will capture beautiful scenery and the famous Horseshoe Pass in Denbighshire, north-east Wales. The road reaches a maximum height of 417 metres (1,368ft) and offers one of the many challenges on the routes.
Once again we will be incorporating a Timed Climb sponsored by our Timing Partner DMR. Further information will be provided in due course.
