LOCATION

Bridgnorth, Shropshire

EVENT SUMMARY

Now in it’s 3rd year, riders numbers have grown and demand for a slot is likely to be high with rider numbers limited to 450.

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 3 routes on offer

  • 50 miles – The baby brother. Once again, we’ll take you over the Clee and bring you back down the Corvedale valley with the wind at your back. Probably. It’s a great way to get into sportive riding providing a proper but manageable challenge. Have a break at Caynham after the climb and roll back in.
  • 70 miles – The slightly troublesome Inbetweener taking in the feedstops at Caynham and Leighton. For those who want a little more riding after climbing the Clee or who did the 50 last year and want to take a step up on the way to the 100.
  • 100 miles – Now we are talking. The bad boy Big Brother. Tough. This takes in the Clee and the Stiperstones and all three feedstations, including a piece of cake the size of a football at The Bog on top of the Long Mynd. We had a couple of claims for a sub 5 hour ride time last year. No, we don’t believe them either….
