I live on the route Mr K (Haslingden to be precise) and so no know the lay of the land. Therefore I know that i'm not fit enough to complete it. That really is a killer loop, it's a little hilly around here and the moors tire you quickly, especially when wet.

Best of luck, but you've been warned.

there was a discussion on stw not long ago (search?) - summary is its long, but very dull. More of an endurance test than fun and interesting ride.

Double warning noted (twice) - however, I've paid my £15 and I'm going to get my full value!!

Let's face it - can't be as daft as to enter the Three Peaks, can it....
