Event: 6 November 2011
Location: Hollycombe Steam Collection, Iron Hill, Liphook, Hants
The last Sportive in the 2011 Wiggle Super Series is a great way to end your 2011 season, before the winter kicks in!
Starting close to the easy to access Devils Punch Bowl and from which the sportive get it name. The course weaves through the scenic roads between the North and South Downs, looping around the stunning Devils Punch Bowl before heading up to the challenging North Downs briefly and then returns South to Hollycombe Steam Collection, which is the event Head Quarters.
This Sportive has been designed to be slightly shorter than Wiggle/UK Cycling Events’ normal sportives to reflect the time of year. But organisers assure us that the route is still quite a challenge, as the course includes a couple of awesome hills to get the legs pumping and amazing descents to get the heart racing, taking in the best of the varied landscape of Hampshire, Surrey and the North Downs. Although there are a couple of hills, everything is rideable. A great end of season sportive, on very quite roads, within a stunning area!
2 different ride lengths (75 miles / 50 miles) allows you to pick your challenge for a great day out.
