The Peak 200 is a self-supported mountain bike route traversing 225km of the Peak District National Park. The route traditionally starts in Edale, and is ridden in an anticlockwise direction for the larger outer loop and clockwise for the inner loop and obviously for the small Lady Cannings loop.
The route offers approximately 5,000m of ascent. Unlike most ITT routes this one can be started at any point, so long as the entire loop is ridden. The out and back to Edale is not ridden when starting elsewhere.
There is no entry fee, no support, and no prizes. It is a self-timed Individual Time Trial (ITT) that can be ridden at any time. All that is provided is the inspiration, the GPX file and a list of completion dates and times. There are many resupply points on or close to the route
