Route information
With two beautiful racing options (55M or 88M) to choose from this devilish sportive is sure to get the quads burning by the end of the day. Set in March in the Shropshire hills, the early Spring air will keep you cool while your legs do the work.
The Welsh border offers spectacular views and if you are daring enough to take on the 88 miler then be prepared for The Burway - a savage climb from Church Stretton to Long Mynd. The country roads remain fairly quiet throughout the ride so you won't have to worry about traffic.
With aid stations along the way and delicious cakes to keep you fuelled, you are sure to enjoy this classic ride.
