The 2015 Eden Valley Epic route is just short of 60 miles and starts from Penrith Leisure Centre.The route initially heads South towards Orton village before looping North to Appleby in Westmorland for the half way food stop.  The homeward leg then weaves it's way through fantastic cycling lanes, via Dufton, Milburn and Langwathby. The route is undulating but does not climb any major hills or mountains. The roads are very quiet, super scenic and well worth the trip!
