Welcome to The Sam Houghton Mountain Bike Challenge
The Challenge is a timed mountain bike ride starting and finishing at the Mill Yard, Staveley and covering the Longsleddale, Kentmere & Troutbeck Valleys and taking in Garburn Pass. It is organised in memory of Sam Houghton, a keen mountain biker who sadly lost his battle against cancer and died aged only 22 in May 2006. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
2021 Event Date Confirmed : 12th June 2021
We are pleased to confirm that the 2021 Sam Houghton Mountain Bike Challenge will take place on Saturday 12th June 2021.
This is of course subject to whatever Public Health England guidelines are in place due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and will of course prioritise the health and wellbeing of participants and their families, as well as the army of helpers and volunteers who kindly give their time to make sure things run smoothly the event day.
However, fingers crossed, we really hope to see you all in 2021 for another great day.
