There are three routes, a 30km route for families and the less experienced cyclists and a more challenging 100km route and an intermediate 73km route both with 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 are a couple of fords en route for the adventurous, but don’t worry there are alternative paths! 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. Both routes turn right opposite Baddesely Clinton, a moated manor house. After the routes split, the Family route passes through the grounds of Packwood House, a much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary while the Sportive route skirts Coughton Court, an imposing Tudor house set in beautiful gardens with a collection of Catholic treasures and links to the Gunpowder plot.
