Event: 22 July 2012
Location: Kirkley Hall, nr Newcaslte upon Tyne
The Northern Angel Sportive is new for 2012. Starting from the stunning Kirkley Hall, you will be guaranteed quiet roads from the offset.
The route heads North West straight into the amazing Northumberland National Park where the sportive is centred. At the enchanting and spectacular Harwood Forest the Fun route splits off and the Epic and Standard routes circumnavigate the breathtaking Simonside Hills which provide a dramatic jagged constant background. The Epic route briefly splits off once more to take in an extra northerly loop towards Kirdland Forest.
All 3 routes then rejoin and cross the awe inspiring, Rayless Common, Corsenside Common, Troughend Common, Hareshaw Common and Chester Common. Riders will feel a sense of remoteness with virtually traffic free roads, but will have their senses constantly overloaded with the endless picture postcard views.
The event includes all the sophistication you would expect from a Wiggle Super Series Event, including: Showers / Toilets, electronic timing, well stocked feed stations, free parking, High Quality Goody bag, event photography, mechanical support, bike wash facilities and most importantly an enjoyable and extremely well marked course! So all you need to do is turn up and ride!
