Early in the cycling season wasn't quite ready for the challenging Herefordshire hills, but what a great sense of achievement when done. Topped off with a super pint of Wye Valley stout and a double burger. So we'll organized worth all the pain and inspirational for rest of season training.… read more

The route was excellent, on quiet beautiful roads through the Worcestershire countryside, with some decent climbs, especially over the Malvern hills! The organisation was good, with plenty of room and facilities at the start and with a barbecue and beers (obviously!) at the end. It all made for a very enjoyable day.… read more

Route description
Route description

This stunning route takes riders around this verdant local landscape with plenty to admire in the distinctive red soils, hop farms, apple orchards and views of Hay Bluff and the distant Welsh mountains.

The route meanders through the tranquil Herefordshire lanes passing many of the local hop farms, which supply the abundance of breweries in the local area and others much further afield.

After tracking the route of the River Wye the ride skirts the Much Marcle ridge before heading up towards the Malvern Hills, the inspiration behind many of the works by Edward Elgar, not least of all the rousing – Land of Hope & Glory.

The course is split into two route options. The Fun Ride or Half Pint, which is 37 miles with 860m of elevation and the Challenge Ride or Full Pint which is 53 miles with an elevation of 1,376m.

Great day out...lovely route,mostly well off the beaten track. Plenty of climbing and some thrilling descents...and the major grind up the Malverns...a perfect combination for a not overly long day.Beer and burgers at the finish,sandwiches and a cuppa at the feed stops. Highly recommended!

Brilliant route but we were very disappointed that there was NO food at the food station! We had been promised lots of goodies - sandwiches, flapjacks etc that did not materialise. They did not even have milk for tea! Very disheartening for riding and especially when you need the energy.
