Did the Short in 2019
Have done this event today, enjoyed it, as always it was well organised, marshalls we're brilliant, even the sun was shining today which was a bonus, & the rain held off at least untill I'd finished thank goodness, despite all the rain we'd had earlier in the week. Will do it again, maybe a longer one next time.… read more

Route description
Route description

The routes start out from Southwell Racecourse and after cutting through Southwell itself riders head out north, winding through quaint English villages on gently undulating terrain, all the while tracking the River Trent for the first 20 or so miles. After passing through Sutton-on-Trent, Short route riders will point their steeds west towards Tuxford, while Epic and Standard riders continue on a northerly track. Here the Epic and Standard routes take in more of glorious Nottinghamshire: crossing railway lines and canals, bisecting swathes of pastureland — you really begin to get a sense of the area.

There are no sudden climbs to note in these early stages of the ride to catch you unawares but make sure you leave a little in the tank for the latter stages of the course.

After reaching Retford riders will work their way south, dropping down through the lovely village of Egmanton before cycling on to Farnsfield. The Epic and Standard routes will split for a second time with the Epic riders continuing south and the Standard riders making a break for home, heading out east and returning through Southwell for the last time.

At this point, Epic riders turn west initially as they begin to climb higher to the town of Rainworth. From here you’ll head south to Calverton where you will find Georges Lane - a climb that may test you a bit if you haven’t kept up with your training during the spring months.

After a quick descent into Woodborough, you’ll have a short recovery before we test you one final time, before the home stretch. Lingwood Lane is a short-lived climb with a short respite half way up, before the final 9% kick at the top. Take time to catch your breath now as it is all downhill for here, giving you a chance to take in the sights along the river Trent.
