After organising the Fleet Moss Audax, and it’s supporting events (Lunesdale Populaire and Pilgrim’s Way), for a number of years recently, Ribble Valley CRC has handed over the mantle to Southport Cycling Club.  They will be organising and promoting the event in 2016.  We hope that RVCRC members will continue to support the events by riding them and our club will help Southport CC with the promotion.

Southport CC have chosen to move the events date further into the summer, and are holding them on Sunday 19th June 2016.  Hopefully, this might give a chance of fair weather on the day.


Fleet Moss 212km (132 miles)

A challenging ride through beautiful countryside including the Forest of Bowland and Upper Wharfedale. Climbs include the Trough of Bowland, Lamb & Tatham Fell, Dent & the infamous Fleet Moss. After Fleet Moss the route takes in Wharfedale, Kettlewell, Grassington, Gargrave and Bolton-by-Bowland, a final climb of Chaigley (Walker Fold) through Chipping and back to Claughton.  Worth 3.25 Audax AAA climbing points.

Audax Rides Sunday 19th June 2016


Join Southport Cycling Club for three challenging but beautiful rides starting and finishing at Claughton

  • Pilgrim’s Way 114km (70 miles) Start 9.00 am


The rides are open to all cyclists with the determination to go the distance. The rides are a true challenge, navigate yourself between check points taking in fantastic scenery, wonderful roads and majestic hills.

The rides are not races, more in the spirit of an event like the London Marathon, everyone riding at their own pace to finish.
