The Drover Cycles Shropshire Devil is the first in the newly expanded 2022 Drover Cycles Sportive series. Banish those winter blues on this splendid Shropshire sortie.

The event HQ will be:

Minsterley Parish Hall

Minsterley

Shropshire

SY5 0EH

 

Grid Ref SJ403058

 

The school is just off the main road (A488). There is ample parking – please park sensibly and follow instructions from marshals.

Both routes will showcase the best of the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Borders. The area is superb for cycling, with quiet roads and stunning views. Be warned, though, there are some hills- in fact lots of hills with rewards of some amazing views!

There are 3 routes to choose from:

  • The 'short' 52 mile route has a total of 1437 vertical metres of climbing, tackling the  renowned climbs of Moat Hill, Long Mountain and the Stiperstones.
  • The medium 65 mile route involves 1781 meters of climbing and as well as the above the beautiful Clun Valley and the climb over Clunton Hill
  • The 88 mile route has a total of 2364 vertical metres of climbing, including the climbs of the Long Mountain, Anchor, Long Mynd and the Stiperstones.

We will have one feed station for the medium route and two for the long and medium routes. Both feed stations will be in village halls with toilets, mechanical assistance and route maps on hand.

Registration: 

Short: 8:00am to 9:30am

Medium: 8:00am to 9:00am

Long: 8:00am to 8:30am
