(formerly “Shropshire Highlands Challenge”)
Following the cancellation of the Danny Mason Highland Challenge in 2020, we hope to run the 2021 challenge on Sunday June 13th. This third lockdown presents preparation challenges and uncertainty; further details about 2021 registration, route etc will be announced here as soon as they are available.
Founded and organised by Danny Mason for 25 years, the iconic Challenge is now organised by Ludlow Cycling Club.
Normally approximately 65 hilly miles, mostly in Shropshire, with catering and toilets provided at stops en route. There is no road signage: you can either download the route in advance into your GPS device or print out the map and route card to take with you.
The Challenge is not a race – no tags, timings or numbers – and how you ride is up to you: we normally attract both young and fast club riders and older once-a-year tourers. A great but tough day for all types.
