Round the Reservoir

Description

101km cycling event starting from Ponteland. Controls at Blanchland and Ponteland., plus 5 information controls.

A loop around the Derwent Reservoir and a revised route for 2020 with some added scenery (and a hill). The 2020 route goes up Bale Hill and Meadows Edge to hopefully give stunning views across Weardale at the top.

Whilst it's not a flat route most of the climbing is quite gradual and this is an ideal route for a first Audax. It's quite a long climb up to Meadows Edge but it's possible to avoid the steep bit at the bottom by taking an alternative route. If the weathers good the views from the top are worth it and there's a long descent to Edmundbyers to look forward to. Several options for places to stop in addition to Blanchland and Wylam.
