Hammer & Sickle

Cycle Sportive , Salcombe – Sunday, 13 Oct 2013

Registered Sportive

Event Summary

Event Overview

The Autumn edition of the Hammer series relocates its HQ to Salcombe famous for its Regatta and Sailing and the sea is a theme for both longer routes. You are within sight of it for a major part of the return home and even on the shoreline at Bigbury on sea. Enjoy the South Hams in its Autumn splendour as you traverse the streams and river valleys on your way out toward Dartmouth across country to Ivybridge and out to Noss Mayo the western most tip of the South Hams. The 3000 metres of climbing will test your season hardened legs, and the finish climb back to HQ on our very own Mini Alpe D’Huez with its hairpin bends and ramps.
