The Pennine ‘X’ M.T.B. Challenge started in 2006 and is a fund raising event in support of ‘The Shred’ (Upper Slaithwaite Church). The route covers approximately 30 miles of excellent mountain biking terrain travelling through the South Pennines of Yorkshire and Lancashire.
About fifty percent of the route is off-road with many difficult but rewarding downhill sections, moorland single track and a few challenging uphills!!
