Sat, 17 Sept 2022
This wonderful event will take you on an adventure through the beautiful New Forest National Park along the wide-sweeping roads often lined with the local roaming livestock. And with 4 distances on offer, whether you're an experienced cyclist or this is your first time out, there is something for you to enjoy.
All four routes start at Gang Warily recreation ground in the South-East corner of the Forest and head immediately south to the coast at Lepe. You'll be able to see stunning views out to the Isle of Wight before turning back into the heart of the New Forest.
The Long route takes in the whole boundary of the National Park so you'll be in for 155k of charming scenery, magical woodlands and not to mention the possibility of spotting some of the local Deer community due to the event taking place during Rutting season.
After a stunning but tough 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.
