About the event
Welcome to the Peaky Blinder & Cheeky Grinder!
One event. Pick your route any combination of routes. The Peaky Blinder takes place on local roads, while the Cheeky Grinder is a gravel ride.
You can ride as many laps of either circuit as you want between 9.00am and 3pm, but you must start your last lap of either route before the 3pm cut-off time.
The final routes will be published two weeks before the event.
The Peaky Blinder route (Road) will be around 35 miles long.
The Cheeky Grinder route (Gravel) will be around 25-30 miles long. The route will use our local knowledge to take in the small lanes, bridleways, tracks, drove roads and green lanes. Suitable for Gravel/CX/Adventure bikes, or MTB.
Both routes start and finish from Haiko Cycling. You will find our fantastic feed station here as well as the included drink of your choice and hot food from 12pm onwards when you've called it a day. The social element of the event is part of it's DNA. We are a local cycling club and not a commercial organiser.
Entry costs just £25.00 per rider and includes:
- Fully signed routes
- GPX files
- Mechanical support
- The legendary feed station - By Sandwi
- Post ride hot food - At Cafe Marina
- Complementary soft or alcoholic drink
- A donation to St Peter's Hospice
We are currently looking into discounted options for Junior riders (Just to cover the costs of the admin, feed station, hot food and insurances)

Can I bring 2 bikes? If you want to bring a gravel bike and a road bike that’s great. We’ll provide a secure ticketed area for safe storage, you can of course use your own lock as well for additional piece of mind.
