The DougieMac Bike Ride is back on Sunday 20th May in our new event location at Port Vale Football Club.

The DougieMac Bike Ride is moving to a new location! We’d like to thank our friends at Port Vale Football Club who kindly allow us to use their venue free of charge.

As we have moved to a brand new location we also have a choice of four brand new routes for our riders.

The DougieMac Ultra

Whilst slightly shorter than our 110 mile route in previous years the DougieMac Ultra is a tough and daring ride featuring 85 miles of quality challenging ascent and stunning scenery.

The DougieMac Challenger

A new and improved 50 mile route perfect for club riders and fun riders alike, taking in the sights and sounds of the market town Leek and passing into the Peaks at Blackshaw Moor.

The MarathonMac

A 26.2 mile route perfect for fun riders, older children with a bit of experience on the bike and newer riders wanting to dip their toes into the world of sportives.

The MiniMac

The MiniMac is a super fun 9 mile ride for our younger supporters. It's suitable for little children, older kids with less experience and adults who want to get in on the action without the commitment to training!

It passes through local parks and nature reserves before winding back round to Port Vale FC where riders will be cheered through the finish line and children met with a medal.
