EVENT DATE

Sunday 7th April 2013

LOCATION

Fareham, Hampshire

EVENT SUMMARY

Brought to you by the organisers of the New Forest Rattler, the Riser is an excellent early season challenge with some stunning scenery and awesome climbs including Old Winchester Hill, Butser Hill and Stoner Hill – a.k.a Little Switzerland.

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of two route options –

  • 46 miles
  • 88 miles

The Meon Valley and its surrounding area is a haven for cycling enthusiasts. The rolling hills in the South Downs make for some spectacular scenery and the area is filled with interesting history. At the top of Old Winchester hill are the remnants of an old Iron Age fort, and old churches and villages litter both routes. At times you’ll forget that you’re only a stones throw away from the major cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.

The routes have been designed to encounter as little traffic as possible, and there are minimal miles on bigger roads. In places the routes narrow to single lanes and extra care will need to be taken on these sections. Overall both of the Riser courses take in some challenging hills, but with rewarding views and descents”
