The DougieMac Ultra (92 miles)

Can you beat the peaks for DougieMac? We’re challenging our most determined riders to the most technical, tough and daring ride yet, perfect for your experienced club rider, or for anyone wanting to take it up a notch.

Whilst slightly shorter than our 110 mile route in previous years, this ride is designed for those wanting to push their quads to the limit. The reduction in mileage allows for 92 miles of quality challenging ascent and stunning scenery. The route traverses undulating hills, testing terrain and picturesque valleys against the backdrop of the magnificent Peak District. You will get to experience beautiful Derbyshire villages like Bakewell and Castleton in the way they were made to be seen… on a bike!

Fuel up in historic Hathersage before descending through Hope Valley and taking on the world famous Winnat’s pass ascent past the Speedwell Cavern. Make your way back to Port Vale FC through Mow Cop, to a major Strava win and a DougieMac Ultra welcome.


The DougieMac Challenger (50 miles)

The challenge is on! Can you ride the 50 for DougieMac? Our most popular distance is back but with a new improved route, perfect for club riders and fun riders alike! This route will test your skills and stamina for sure. The route passes into the Peaks at Blackshaw Moor, overlooked by the striking gritstone outcrops of the Roaches.

The real challenge in this ride is the climb up to the village of Flash. At 1518 feet above sea level Flash is recorded the highest village in Britain. Be sure to take a (safe) selfie with its iconic sign. Once you’ve conquered Flash, make your way back through the buzzing Sunday “Silk Town” of Macclesfield, the festival town of Congleton before returning to a victor’s welcome at Port Vale FC.


The MarathonMac (26.2 miles)

A 26.2 mile route perfect for fun riders, older children with a bit of experience on the bike and newer riders wanting to dip their toes into the world of sportives.

The route passes through Central Forest Park before wrapping round the Caldon Canal for 5 miles of beautiful, flat scenic cruising. Following this you will be treated to a challenging up-hill stretch to Gratton, so we can test your pedal power! Cycle through charming country lanes in the Staffordshire Moorlands, before descending the famous Mow Cop Mile and returning to Port Vale FC for the finisher’s celebrations.

The MiniMac (9 miles)

A 9 mile route designed for young and less experienced riders, all riders under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
