This ride explores the captivating countryside and surrounding scenery throughout the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. Balancing quiet rural roads that flow through meadows and woodland and packing in three testing climbs in Win Green, Bulbarrow and Milton Abbas, this all-round sportive offers something for every type of rider, from the outright beginner to the seasoned sportiviste.
Crossing over the River Avon and skirting around the western edge of the New Forest, this sportive is not short of spectacle. Tired legs aside, you’ll ride roads that deliver panoramic views of distant Somerset from Bulbarrow, Dorset’s highest point. You’ll also pass through the quintessentially British picture postcard village of Milton Abbas before tackling the climb of the same name. North Dorset’s North Downs are the icing on this tasty three-county cake.
