Wiltshire Falling Leaves Sportive
Event: 22 September 2013
With two rides to choose from – 100 miles epic or 100km challenge – the Wiltshire Falling Leaves offers riders a chance to head toward the end of the season in some stunning scenery, on quiet lanes passing some fantastic landmarks and with a few tests to challenge their fitness.
The two routes both start with the climb of Bowden Hill after 10 miles with the longer epic then heading in to South Gloucestershire with two further climbs and the challenge rolling through Wiltshire’s glorious autumn lanes.
Notable landmarks will include
- Lacock, famed for its National Trust Abbey and used in numerous Hollywood films
- Westonbirt Arboretum offering a stunning sight of autumnal leaves and colours
- Badminton House famed for the annual 3 day event Horse Trials
- Castle Coombe Village which is simply a stunning example of a quintessential British ‘chocolate box’ village complete with babbling brook
