Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing technical we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.
We're back in the New Forest in April for the first time of two in 2021 for our Classic Series event. Offering four different routes all starting from Gang Warily recreation ground that head immediately down to the coast at Lepe beach.
If you're new to riding then check out our Rook ride which is just 17km in length but will give you a taste of the joys of exploring our Great British countryside on two wheels. If you're looking for something a little longer then choose between the; Short, Middle and Long routes that all weave through the New Forest National Park, taking in the beautiful scenery and magical woodlands along the way. You'll even see some of the roaming livestock on your way round including New Forest Ponies and Highland Cattle.
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.
Our New Forest events are always incredibly popular which is why we hold the event over both weekend days, so make sure you join us for at least one day of riding... but maybe even both?
We’ll be back in the New Forest for our Tour series event in September, but for now we hope to see you in April.
Please note that you are viewing the Sunday event. If you wish to ride on Saturday, please visit New Forest Classic Saturday
