Day 1: Starting at the St Pancras Renaissance, the route escapes London heading due North, picking its way between the commuter towns of St Albans, Luton and Stevenage. Carving through the rolling hills of Northamptonshire and taking a subtle change of course, the cyclists then navigate the UK's industrial heartland to their accommodation at the Marriott Leicester Hotel & Spa.
Day 2: Derbyshire will be the largest challenge to weary legs as us mere mortals will attempt to tame the Peak District's prehistoric landscape and unpredictable elements - climbing to a height of 399 metres above sea level. The descent into Stockport should provide a brief respite before the final run-in to Manchester and the finish line at the foot of the iconic Beetham tower.
The cycle ride hopes to raise much-needed funds for specified charities Mustard Tree and the Alexander Jansons Foundation. This will be done through corporate jersey sponsorship and individual money raising initiatives.
