Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. A rebrand of the Old UKCE Jurassic Beast events comes the fresh new Jurassic Classic. If you’ve ridden here with us before you’ll know that there are a few punchy climbs. These new three routes are certainly no exception to that rule.
There are a handful of steep climbs as you make your way along the Jurassic Classic route, with the highest point being a 1.8km, 7% average gradient section up along the Lulworth Range. With the efforts of the climbs come the rewards of some spectacular coastal views down over Warbarrow and Kimmeridge Bay. As well as the well earned sweeping descents as you make your way around the Purbeck Hills.
Keep your eyes open for the historical structures that line the routes as you’ll be passing by Lulworth and Corfe castle, make sure you don’t forget to smile for our photographers!
Of course you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you in May and remember with three different routes to choose from, there's something for everyone!
Dorset, BH20 6JG
Long: 113 km
Middle: 91 km

Punchy climbs will be found on all routes, so make sure you take care on the steep descents that allow you to pick up a lot of speed.
Choose your route carefully. The distance and elevation gain should give you some indication as to how easy/hard each route is, as well as showing you where the tougher climbs are.
