The Peak 200 Independent Time Trial (ITT)

About Peak 200

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

Generic ITT Rules
- Complete the entire route, under your own power - no drafting
- Be completely self-supported throughout the ride - absolutely no support crews, absolutely no gear sharing
- Only use commercial services that are available to all challengers - no private resupply, no private lodging
- If you have to leave the route, you must rejoin it at the exactly same spot - No caches of any kind
- No third-party sag-wagon offering an easy bail-out option
- No pre-arranged support, which means before you begin your ride - e.g. booking a B&B
- No travel by any motorized means during your ride - by all means do so if necessary, but understand if you do your attempt is over
- Gear - nothing required, nothing prohibited

If you have questions then please consider if you are ready to attempt a 225km mountain bike ride in the Peak District!
