From Clee to Heaven

As the little sister of the Kidderminster Killer, this 120km audax provides an epic adventure into rural and hilly South Shropshire along a figure of 8 route. A fantastic route, and roller coaster of hilly countryside, for those seeking a challenging, but not overly far, audax ride. It is lumpy with 2000m of climb but the views are rewarding.

Ride Cotswolds

At the height of summer, the Cotswolds will be at their immaculate best and what better way to enjoy them than by bike as you navigate the intertwining lanes and tackle the rolling hills. With all three routes barely leaving the confines of this area of natural beauty the event showcases the region like never before. Constantly undulating from start to finish the rapid succession of climbs and descents will keep you on your toes all day, and although those in the first half of the ride are relatively tame, those in the later stages pack a significantly bigger punch. Rising up the ridge from Broadway, Snowshill Road is the big wake up call after the gentle start and will have you climbing for over eight kilometres before you reach the summit. With the epic route heading south the ups become bigger and so do the downs as you head south to Bourton Hill then loop back via Clapton-on-the-hill and the last big test of the day Rissington Road. Climbing up and through the pretty village of Rissington, winding between its pristine stone cottages and manicured gardens this is the quintessential Cotswolds climb, and at 2.3 kilometres long with an average of 5% a pretty tough one too round of a wonderful day.

What you need to know about Road Cycling Events

Discover UK and International Road Cycling events. Featuring Sportives, Gran Fondos and Charity Bike Rides in our 2018 Cycling Calendar. Cycling is a hugely popular sport but can sometimes seem a closely guarded secret, there’s a lot of jargon and kit but once you pop, you absolutely can’t stop. It’s a great weekend activity, go with friends and cruise round city parks or country lanes, you’ll be addicted in no time.

Different road cycling event types

We sort our cycling events by Short (0-50km), Medium (50-100km), Long (100-200km) and Ultra (200km+). Most of these are Sportives. Here are some cycling event names defined:

  • Gran Fondo — a mass participation cycling event at least 120km long. A large event with closed roads, usually chip timed. People travel all over Europe to compete in these events.
  • Century — a cycle of 100 miles (160.9 km) or more within 12 hours, usually as a club sponsored event. A large event with closed roads, people can get there PBs here. Usually chip timed.
  • Sportives — most of the cycling events on our site are sportives, these are the most popular endurance cycling events. They’re held all over the world and rarely exclude traffic. They’re more relaxed and whilst people do go for PBs it’s a much more convivial atmosphere than the more formal Gran Fondo races.
