Purity Brewing Co Sportive routes

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 races.

Details of the two routes can be found below:

Half Pint
Distance: 55KM (34 miles)
Elevation: 587m

Challenge Ride (Full Pint)
Distance: 86KM (52 miles)
Elevation: 867m

    Really nice route and well run by all involved. Nice touch getting a free drink afterwards and the rest stops were well stocked with energy drinks, food and snacks. Would definitely do another sportive with LDT.

    Very well organised, good weather and a really nice route along nice lanes. A fair test without be too challenging
  • Did the Half Pint - 34 Miles in 2019

    good organistation, well signed route. However not told that we had to sign in after the ride presumably as no chips were used, I recieved a text several hours later asking if I had finished, this could have been avoided by giving your number back after the ride, preferably with one free beefburger of veggieburger.
