This long established “Classic” sportive on spring bank holiday weekend will start and finish county town of Monmouth on the border of the Forest of Dean.

The Classic route with its 20 named and numbered climbs has been compared with some of the famous Belgium classics without the cobbles, with climbs of 3 miles to short pitches of up to 25% all crammed into 89miles, no one rider has yet to break 4 ½ hours on the Classic ride. The Forest of Dean is tough terrain hence the 2 options of the Challenge ride and the new “Come and Try” ride to ease riders into the one of the most testing areas in the UK.
