The Uk Cycling Events' Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With three routes to choose from and nothing too technical this is a great event for both experienced riders and anyone new to the sport.
The penultimate Classic series event awaits with The Cranborne Classic, which winds through the rolling countryside of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is rich in history with the route passing through numerous Saxon villages including Rockbourne which is home to an Ancient Roman villa dating as far back as the Iron Age to the 5th-century.
All three routes start out from Salisbury Racecourse in Wiltshire, the route crosses into Dorset, then Hampshire before returning back to Wiltshire. As you cross the county lines and the boundary of South-West and South-East England you’ll ride through free-flowing and rolling roads that won’t trouble your legs too much. So you really can enjoy the ride and your time in the saddle.
This ride really is about getting outdoors for time well spent on your bike and ticking off quiet kilometres as you enjoy the charming country lanes that link these sleepy rural villages together.
After a stunning day out on the road you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from other event partners.
So sign up for a wonderful, professionally run cycling experience with a friendly atmosphere.
