Saddleworth Clarion Cycling Club

A Sunday in Hell- April 26th 2015

Leige - Bastogne - Leige

This years L'enfer is on April 17th and again will run on the same day as 'La Doyenne'.

The Route and sectors

50 miles of hell. Sectors of  gravé (gravel) and pavé (cobbles) will abound in our 6th annual L'enfer


To give other Claron members the chance to join us the Grand Depart is at 10am from Java Bar in Uppermill but we are meeting for a pre-ride coffee, from 9am


Join you Clarion pals on a homage to the Paris Roubaix  and the other spring classics as we seek out the cobbles and rough tracks of Saddleworth, a shout of 'Boonen!', 'Museeuw!', 'Merckx' or 'Cancellara!'  is traditional as we hit every cobbled section.


Downlaod this to your gpx unit and good luck!
