Route information
This cycle sportive kicks-off from Purity Brewing Co, an award winning craft brewery established in 2005.
Situated in the picturesque Warwickshire countryside between Birmingham and Stratford, both routes take advantage of the relatively flat surrounding rural land and its natural beauty.
Riders will wind along quiet country lanes and through sleepy farming communities before the long route pushes on further towards the edge of the Cotswolds and through the Lenches. Although the majority of the cycle is flat, there will be some undulating parts during both distances.
The course is split into two route options. The Fun Ride or Half Pint, which is 34 miles with 587m of elevation and the Challenge Ride or Full Pint which is 52 miles with an elevation of 867m.

Fantastic route and we’ll set out stops, only issue was when I got to the 2nd stop it didn’t have any water set up so had to find a tap in the village hall.

A good course with a range of steep ramps and nice long drags, as well as plenty of 1 to 4% roads to keep you busy. A couple of busy roads to cross, not helped by road works. Perhaps a warning about the ford would be useful! Also, some signage about gravel on corners could help. The parking was good, didn't get chance to look around the brewery, which was a shame. Interesting farmyard smells didn't help - but that's the price for having a start/finish on a working farm. Not sure why you had Porsches on show; something more bike related would be more appropriate? On the whole, would recommend this event and come again...

The route was great except leaving at the end in the car meant driving the opposite way to all the bikers still riding!

It was a brilliant course. The bloke organising was excellent as always and the volunteers were wonderfully helpful at every part. Food stops decent.I did mention that there was one section with lots of gravel and a caution sign should have been used. I did say the same on the last ride, but I guess the advice was missed, or not deemed important.Only dissatisfaction was the reward versus the cost.There was a choice of two distances, named Half Pint, (for £25) and a Full Pint (£37). You only received a very small can of beer for completing the course. I was expecting a pint as per last event. You didn't actually get anything for the shorter ride.It was a bit mean if you think about what costs there would be, so I would have thought that the Brewery would have done very well in terms of sales, so they could easily fund what there would have been, like 3 mobile toilets for a day. It would have been even cheaper to use the ones already in the Brewery. It was a bit strange because there were 3 brand new Porsche cars for sale, so they were obviously expecting a certain clientele, bit not one they'd trust with public conveniences!
