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 races.
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.

Did the Half Pint in 2021
Refreshments at Harvington were dreadful. They had run out of cake and it wasn't possible to fill water bottle as the containers had run out. They were refilling them but that blocked access to the taps for everyone. Also nowhere to sit down. Very poor!

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.
