This exciting challenge is to cycle from the Arighi Bianchi car park in Macclesfield up to the Cat & Fiddle car park and return to the Arighi Bianchi car park 24 times.Using an estimate that the average cyclist would take 70 minutes per loop (there and back) the event will involve 28 hours of cycling over a total of 38 hours, allowing for 10 hours rest in a nearby hotel
This will be tough challenge in true Steve Prescott Foundation style. As a comparison with the 2014 Tour De Yorkshire which was 225 miles over 2 days equivalent to approximately 19,000 feet of climbing. The Cat and Fiddle Challenge is 336 miles over 2 days equivalent to approximately 29,000 feet of climbing.The height of Mount Everest is 29,000 feet. Each run up the Cat & Fiddle involves 1,240 feet of accent. 24 runs up & down the Cat & Fiddle will cover this height and slightly more.
