Event Overview

Shropshire Hills Sportives 2013

Now a ‘must do’ event on the Shropshire cycling calendar, the Mamil Cycling Shropshire Hills Sportive will be held on the 7th July 2013 starting and finishing in Bridgnorth’s historic High Street and taking in some of the best scenery the County has to offer.

Now in it’s 3rd year, riders numbers have grown and demand for a slot is likely to be high. We are determined to retain the family feel so ALL riders, solos, club riders, groups, everybody, gets a proper send off from the traffic free High Street and a proper welcome back through the finish gate. This will mean numbers will be limited to 450. Once we’re full, we’re full!

Like last year, there will be a choice of three routes extending to 50, 70 and 100 miles. All routes take in the gruelling climb of the Clee Hill but we won’t send you up climbs for the sake of it, promise. You’ll be supported by three well stocked feed stations (one on the 50, two on the 70 and three on the 100) where you can refuel. The Big Daddy 100 mile route will take you over the Long Mynd – truly breathtaking in every sense of the word.

We are delighted that local lads, Schwalbe, will be our sponsors again for 2013. There will be plenty going on in the High Street during the day with traders (bike and non bike related) so bring the family, there’s load to do and see in Bridgnorth.

Check back here for regular updates, the elves at Mamil Towers are working on ideas for stuff to go in the goody bags  - last years casquettes went down well – we are seeing them appear all over the country. What will it be this year....? 

Shropshire Hills 50 - Awwww…. The baby brother. Once again, we’ll take you over the Clee and bring you back down the Corvedale valley with the wind at your back. Probably. It’s a great way to get into sportive riding providing a proper but manageable challenge. Have a break at Caynham after the climb and roll back in.

Shropshire Hills 70 - New in 2012, the slightly troublesome Inbetweener taking in the feedstops at Caynham and Leighton. For those who want a little more riding after climbing the Clee or who did the 50 last year and want to take a step up on the way to the 100 for 2014 perhaps?

Shropshire Hills 100 - Now we are talking. The bad boy Big Brother. Tough. This takes in the Clee and the Stiperstones and all three feedstations, including a piece of cake the size of a football at The Bog on top of the Long Mynd. We had a couple of claims for a sub 5 hour ride time in last couple of years.  Can you drag yourself round to join the exalted few ? or just take it easy and take in the lovely sights….
