The Swan Cycle sportive is a fantastic adventure through the Worcestershire countryside from one of the best pubs in Worcestershire taking you along the most scenic routes. With three distances of 10, 30 and 70 miles this sportive is for everyone!
As an end of summer sportive test, The Swan Cycle II pretty much has it all. Weaving around rural roads in the county of Worcestershire the route will give you some challenging climbs, winding roads and amazing views.
We have added an additional Family Ride which is for adults and children (above 12 years of age). The family is a 10 mile route along country roads and passing woods and on a fairly gentle route.
The Fun Ride route has a steady start taking you north through Drayton and Belbroughton until you begin to climb the Clent. You'll then pass through small villages such as a Elmley Lovett, Hartlebury as you head south where you have an opportunity to recharge at a refreshment stop along the way.
Starting to head back towards the Event HQ in Chaddesley Corbett, you'll have a feeling of accomplishment and excitement as you reconvene with your friends and family at The Swan Inn.
For those taking on the Challenge Route you will head south towards Upton Warren along fantastic relatively flats country roads. Coming back around going through Lower and Upper Bentley you will see the Lickey Hills in your sights for one last climb.
From here on in, there is a relatively flattish route towards the finish with the odd spike in gradient, as you can head back through the quiet and undisturbed rural roads at a pace to suit you.
