Brewin Dolphin New Forest Summer

The Brewin Dolphin New Forest Summer Sportive takes you out to conquer the wonders of the New Forest, promising to be packed with wildlife and scenic views over the national park. You are sure to have a spectacular day.

We will take you along coastal route via Calshot, Lepe, and Exbury, passing through the gorgeous Lepe Country Park along the way.

The beautiful village of Beaulieu is also on this route. Short route riders will take on the climb to Hatchet pond then along to Brockenhurst to rejoin the rest of the pack. Epic and Standard riders head north west to Lyndhurst, passing the quaint forest railway station at Beaulieu road. After a quick glance at the bustling town well push on up to Ashurst before tracking along the eastern edge of the forest.

From here we will head deeper in to the heart of the old royal hunting ground, eventually reaching the small hamlet of Fritham. At this point the Standard riders will carry on south towards Bolderwood, while Epic riders continue their journey north for a loop that winds its way in and out of the most northerly border of the forest. Heading south, the riders regroup just before passing under the A31, striking a definite course south towards the focal point of the ride - a spectacular stint through Ornamental Drive. It is here you will see the best the forest has to offer.

CX Century: The South Downs Way

The South Downs Way; it has long been a right of passage in mountain biking circles. And now this hundred mile ribbon of imposing chalk downland is about to become an icon of the CX/gravel scene. The huge climbs and sweeping descents wouldnt be out of place among the Tuscan Strade Bianchi, while the expansive coastal views are quintessential British beauty.

  • Did the 100km in 2017

    Longest off-road distance I've done in a day- so I was really unsure whether I was going to get through it, especially such an iconic route. I was really proud to get to the end and see my family and friends waiting on the finish line - what a truly rewarding experience, from start to finish - thanks Martin a team for creating the opportunity to have a crack at it!
  • Did the 100km in 2017

    Great ride only let down by no after ride water and post ride food at the finish
  • Did the 100km in 2017

    Doing the South Downs Way in one day was a massive test for me. I doubt I would have completed it without the support stations along the way. Signposting was reassuring, feed stations well stocked, would recommend for anyone fancying attempting this challenge

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.
