Route information
Both routes begin in Thruxton, you can choose between 110k or 70k on the day of the event.
Long Route
The long route is perfect for strong riders and experienced gravel cyclists. This ride is rolling throughout with a rough 1.5k climb averaging 8%. This route will then rejoin the medium route back to the start line for some well-earned drinks and cheer.
Medium Route
The medium route should take cyclists around 4 to 6 hours to complete and is perfect for any new off-road cyclists. Predominantly on gravel, this will be perfect for anyone looking for some experience. There will be a tough section up towards Westerly point where you will be rewarded with a very long descent to the final feed stop. Then with most of the route covered you will have 16k left to go. Keep that finishers beer in your mind to drive yourself to the finish.
