Wiggle Hawker Hurricane SportiveBrackley, Buckinghamshire, GB

This is a sportive of two halves for Standard and Epic riders, at least. Those taking part in the longer ride will take in both parts on an afternoon spent on the best rolling roads in Northamptonshire. The route is typical of the county without too many climbing challenges, while taking in stunning villages lined with limestone houses and elegant churches, as well as a number of other prominent sights.

Beginning at Turweston Aerodrome, Westbury, the route heads out to explore the brilliant surrounding countryside by taking in fast and technical back lanes around Shalstone, Dadford and Abthorpe, before skirting around Towcester and moving north towards the first feed stop of the day.

The sportive has one climb to challenge you and this will come later on. For now, you can enjoy the areas swooping countryside as short and sharp climbs are met with rewarding descent action. As you cruise through the rural roads, youll be able to enjoy views around Farnborough Park, Burton Country Park, Litchborough Park and Boddington Reservoir.

When the Standard loop is coming to a close, Epic riders head out onto their own loop. This half features the most testing climbing action of the day and is a must for those really looking to get the most out of their day in the saddle.

Eventually youll reach Burton County Park, where the days true testing climb will separate the tired and the tenacious. This comes around 60 miles in, so will take some beating, but is followed by a rewarding rolling route back to the finish line, so will be worth the extra effort, and the commitment of taking on the extra circuit.
