There are three routes:-

  • a 30km route for families and the less experienced cyclists

  • an intermediate 73km route

  • a more challenging 100km route

 

The two longer routes both have refreshment stops and timing.  The well-signed routes wend their way through the Warwickshire lanes, with the sportive making a brief foray into Worcestershire via Feckenham.  There is a ford en-route for the 100km, but we suggest that riders take the bridge at Coughton as the road is very slippery. With only a couple of climbs, it’s the ideal event both for the experienced rider and those looking for their first sportive after a summer of training.    

There are several National Trust properties on the routes which are well worth exploring. The routes split at
Baddesely Clinton, a moated manor house. After the routes split, the Family 30km route passes through the grounds of Packwood House, a much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary whilst the 100km route skirts Coughton Court, an imposing Tudor house set in beautiful gardens with a collection of Catholic treasures and links to the Gunpowder plot. 


Probable routes for the 2022 event (note:- there is always the possibly that these may change if any last minute road closures are identified). The routes are 95% the same as the previous year, but there are a handful of small changes we have introduced to improve flow and reduce risk.
