Autumn Skylark Sportive

Now in its second year, the Autumn Skylark Sportive is a journey through the South Pennine uplands, until recently a relatively unheralded area for cycling. However, thanks to the 2014 Tour de France’s visit to the area, it is well and truly on the map, both as a place to cycle and also as a place to enjoy for its unique mixture of windswept moorlands, quiet country lanes, tiny villages and attractive towns, full of historical buildings and atmospheric remains of the industrial revolution.
