About Dark & White Challenge Events

 

Dark & White Challenge Events are Peak District based and specialise in organising a wide variety of challenging events:

Trailquests & Mountain Biking - mountain bike orienteering events in the Peak District set up in liaison with the BMBO (British Mountain Bike Orienteering). There are both Winter and Summer leagues to choose from. Testing your stamina, mountain biking and navigational skills.

Mountain Marathons - for 2014 we offer a three event series of Rab sponsored UK based wild country four hour mini-mountain marathons, these events will very definitely test both your brains and your legs!

Road Biking - 2014 sees further developments to our road biking/sportive calendar – for comprehensive details on all rides/routes etc. go to www.darkwhitecycling.co.uk or the road biking page on this website. All sportives are registered and supported by British Cycling.

This website provides full information and a schedule of all ongoing events plus information/entry forms in an easily downloadable format. Event entries can be made on-line through our association with WorldPay and Nat West Streamline. The site also contains a complete archive of results from all previous events.
