About
All of the Cycling routes begin and finish at Harper Adams University near Newport, Shropshire. It is a wonderful venue with excellent facilities and plenty of parking in a safe secure location allowing you to ride with peace of mind.All the routes head South, out of the University campus, passing through the quiet villages of Edgmond, riding past the beautiful St Peters Church, and forward through wonderful open countryside towards the first short sharp testing climb of the day, just outside of Lilleshall, and then onwards to climb the highest point on the Bronze route, just before Sheriffhales. From there the route continues down country lanes passing through farmland near to the Morrey Meadows National Nature Reserve towards Wheaton Aston then on towards Penkridge for the first feed station of the day. After refreshment the Gold and Silver routes continue East whilst those riding the Bronze route head North and begin their trip back to the University – but do not fear for you will take a different return route to the one you came on! Passing through more charming villages, along country lanes and interesting places, such as the delightful Norbury Junction canal basin, before arriving at the finish line after riding a Bostin’ Chase 70K/40 miles Bronze route.
