65 Roses Holme Moss Classic with Planet-X


Why not join Team CF and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the inaugural 65 Roses Holme Moss Challenge, supported by Planet-X, on Sunday 22nd September 2013.

The 65 Roses Holme Moss Challenge is a ride through the rolling hills of South Yorkshire including the ascent of the iconic Holme Moss, part of the 2014 Tour de France’ journey through Yorkshire.

Team CF and Planet-X invite you to join us in this spectacular ride to help us raise awareness for our cause. We’re not asking you to raise money lots of money. Simply enter online and turn up and ride.

We’ll begin our route at the home of Planet-X and Magna in Rotherham and head out along the familiar roads that are already home to Team CF. The opening procession will be supported by South Yorkshire Police operating a rolling road closure, using the event as practice for next years Tour de France, as well as keeping everybody safe through the town.

We’ll take in the beauty of the South Yorkshire Pennine countryside, with a number of steady climbs throughout. But don’t be deceived, just like anything from South Yorkshire, it’s “hard as nails!”  And, when you have gained its respect, you and it will become firm friends. 

There are two routes, the full 65 miles including Holme Moss and a shorter 46 miles, which will still be a worthy challenge to any cyclist.

Some riders will do the route in five hours, some will take all day. It isn’t a race, it’s a fun ride on two wheels and open to any competent cyclist, minimum age 12 years. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all times throughout the event.

Online registration and postal entries are £20.00 and open till 18.09.13 or enter on the day for £25.00.

  • Ride starts and finishes at Magna, Science Adventure Centre, Sheffield Road, Rotherham, S60 1DX.
  • Registration opens at 8:00am.  
  • Ride starts 9:00 am
