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.
