Sportive fans looking for a testing target to enliven the end of their season could find their ideal match in the inaugural DorkingShift 3-cyclosportive event. The British Cycling-backed event features three distances of 30, 50 and 100 miles, all taking in the beautiful lanes of the North Downs. The 100-mile HeroShift is not for the faint hearted, ascending up to 8,500 feet over 8 categorised climbs, making it one of the toughest sportives in the UK.
