The New Forest Spring Sportive is one of our most popular event and has become a welcome start-of-season test for for many cyclists. Due to its popularity, the event runs on both a Saturday and Sunday and usually sells out before the day. Take this as a sign that youll get your cycling fill from this sportive, which takes in much of the stunning New Forest on the route.

As you ride and take in the views in the rolling scenery, there will be a number of hills to challenge your legs plus a test to come near the end with short and sharp climbs popping up every now and again to keep you on your toes. Beautiful New Forest villages of Sway, Beaulieu and Lepe are passed through before you head north and back into the centre of the district.

Quickly in and out of central point Lyndhurst, youll soon take on the events major climb of the day, just outside Nomansland. Its steep, but fairly short, so you should be able to dispose of this quickly and continue on your way. From here, its downhill all the way with one spiky hill exception around Stuckton and the final feed stop as you roll back around the edges of the Forest, towards Ringwood, and claim your medal, t-shirt and Powerbar recovery product at the finish line.
