LOCATION

Swindon, Wiltshire

EVENT SUMMARY

After it’s launch in 2010 the Great Western Sportive has grown into a popular event and has an increased rider capacity to 2,000 riders in 2013. A choice of 3 routes starting from Swindon across the ancient Ridgeway and winding through the Marlborough Downs.

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 3 route options are available –

  • Full – 101 miles (163km) with a height gain of 2036m
  • Midi – 72 miles (117km) with a height gain of 1730m
  • Short – 50 miles (81km) with a height gain of 1061m

“Rolling across the ancient Ridgeway and winding through the beautiful Marlborough Downs, the route is a real treat, with broad, open roads echoing the sweep of the scenery. The folds of the Downs provide the gradients to put you to the test, but this is a ride to reward you for every challenge, not beat you relentlessly into submission. A riders ride, if you will.
