This ever-popular cyclosportive takes riders on a magnificent loop of the New Forest - offering a fantastic day on the bike in a truly stunning part of the country. With three different route options; 47, 82 and 102 mile - this is an event for cyclists of all abilities.

The 102 mile epic route offers the more experienced sportive rider a fantastic challenge, and completely showcases the fantastic New Forest National Park. Be warned though – the last 20 miles of the epic route are the hilliest!

The New Forest offers some great cycling and some spectacular scenery. The routes have a mixture of terrain - there are sections with long open straights that are truly exhilarating, some punchy hills, and also some longer gradual climbs. The maximum gradient is at Blissford hill near the end of each route where you will encounter a 25% climb. This is a short sharp climb that looks like a wall as you approach it.
