Cycling advice?

Hi there, hope you don't mind me messaging you. I'm part of the university of Sheffield cycling club, a group of us are coming up for the weekend to watch the tour of Britain and do some cycling in September.

 

We plan on doing 100km+ each day, I've done some cycling in the area before. But was wondering if you might be able to give me any advice on nice areas to aim for or any good climbs/scenic spots. Or whether you could direct me towards someone who could advise me?

 

Thank you very much for the help
