The Route

Over 100KM?

Cycling over 100km can seem like a daunting task but is achievable with a bit of hard work and dedication! One of the fantastic things about this Sportive is that it is not a race and if as a new rider you are struggling there will be plenty of spots on the route where you can stop and hop off your bike for a quick bite to eat to refuel before heading back!

 

If you do fancy a shorter distance however you can drop down to the Short Sportive!
