“The Long route comprises of 101 miles with 2,700m of climbing, all routes head out of Shrewsbury Football Club and make their way to Long Mynd – the first of the main climbs. The main climbing starts at around the 12 mile marker and finishing at Robin Hood’s Butt at 15 miles after which it’s fast cycling to the split point. The long route wends it’s way down to Clun (feed station) via some more climbs and then on to Knighton where riders tackle a long 14 mile climb to the top of Kerry Hill. More fast cycling to Montgomery through some picturesque wooded areas before the steepest climb of the day up to the top of Long Mountain before returning back to Shrewsbury.

The shorter route comprises of 64 miles with 1,400m of climbing and follows the long route to the split point via the Long Mynd climb and then heads more directly to Montgomery (re-joining the long route) and a feed station before heading up the steep Long Mountain climb before the last chance for a fast paced cycle back to the football club.”
