Now in it's third year, the sportive follows a similar route to previous years, starting with an awesome climb up onto the Longmynd, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty managed by the National Trust. The route travels north up to Minsterley before heading southwest along the picturesque Hope Valley. From here the route ventures into Wales, the longer route travelling through Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire to a southerly point of Knighton, before back into Shropshire and home to Marshbrook. The shorter route heads home through Bishops Castle. Both courses are challenging, offering a memorable ride through unbelievably scenic countryside.

Once back you' will be welcomed with a well deserved cuppa, homemade cake, finisher T-shirt and certificate showing your ride time.

There is free camping and parking for all riders and supporters. At the event village you will find showers, toilets, bike wash, refreshments and a wide range of stands and stalls offering all things cycling!
