      We have had a few queries about a group discount so here you are! Discount applies as you get to the pay point. Applies to all rides so you can all do a different route if you wish Hope this encourages any who are nervous about entering – remember this is NOT A RACE and will be as social as it will be fun ????

Gruff Details!!!

So you are considering the Gruff Gravel Ride? If you like a challenging parcours and you don’t mind waiting to see it, we will be sending out the GPX file to participants on 7 days before the event on the 14th. Partly to keep you guessing but also as we have yet to settle on one of four ‘draft’ routes! Currently testing them over the summer, (although I have my preferred option) unlike the Billy and Nanny road routes, the Gruff will change each year as there are literally hundreds of miles of singletrack, bridleway, drove road and quarry track to choose from. 50km/4 hours is our aim and tough and chunky gravel riding our preference. Gravel bike or mountain bike will be needed. Sign up soon, it’s only a tenner! The Gruff Goats

The Maynard to feed the Goat!

Hi everyone, Dave and Sarah here, new co-ride managers for the 2019 Grindleford Goat in conjunction with the Sir William Hill Climb.  Please check out the tabs above for details on the Goat, Hill Climb, entry, other events and lots more. For those who know Matt Heason, which is everybody, he has stepped aside this year to get cracking on other exciting things, but is still keeping an eye to make sure everything runs smoothly.  We’re heading towards the end of June and the numbers are filling up nicely.  We have gone into partnership with the well-known Maynard Hotel here in Grindleford for  the pasta meal, which with a beer, will be £9.50 to us.  We are passing that price straight on to you.  Meat and veggie options and a soft drink instead of beer will be available.  Check out the RiderHQ page for more details.  We have ordered the fine weather, something like last year would be very nice!  Well done everyone who turned up in the teeth of the forecast and enjoyed a beautiful warm day with blue skies. As last year, we are super-geared up at the feed stations to make sure we are over-stocked no matter how hungry you are or how delicious the cakes, which of course are all included in the entry price.  Our friend John at Cafeology has very kindly stepped up once again to provide some great coffee for you – he’ll be making a little charge for the good stuff and […]

Goat 2019

  The Goat & Sir William Hill Climb 2019 is finally going live on Rider HQ on Wednesday 5 June! All events are happening on a DAY FESTIVAL OF CYCLING for the first time this year. See the Goat and Sir William tabs for our food offers this year. Prices are on the entry tab – watch out for the DEALS if you are Goat enough to take on more than one ride. Our improved Kid ride, longer and more off road but less fearsomely steep is a perfect whole family challenge and takes in a ‘open once a year’ concession track that is quite beautiful. We have of course ordered the lovely Peak District weather (we Hope…)!
