Wiggle Jurassic Beast

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to tame the Beast? A couple of thousand other cyclists in attendance of this sportive on the historic Jurassic Coast in Dorset certainly think so, as this event enters its seventh year. With a mixture of leg-pumping climbs, spectacular views and historical scenery to be seen along the way, this has become a ‘must do’ ride for many cyclists and one of the most popular events in our sportive calendar.

Starting out at the National Tank Museum in Bovingdon, Epic riders split straight away as the route heads north and up through a series of unspoilt Dorset villages, skirting around the base of menacing-looking hills in the region, throwing in a short and sharp climb every now and again – while you’ll pass the first after mile 10 just past Milton Abbas.

Continuing on, the next spike in gradient will follow just a few miles later, just before Shillingstone, as the sportive begins to live up to its reputation as a testing ride. There’s worse to come yet – again, only a few miles down the road, as this trio of testing climbs is completed when you pass first through Higher Ansty, into Ansty Cross, and out through Lower Ansty, before stopping off for the first feed stop.

Pushing on through Dorset, you’ll continue to ride through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The scenery may be beautiful, but the hills do not let up as you’ll soon be on the back-foot once more with another series of short and steep climbs.

Soon enough, it’s time to head towards the coast and take in the terrific views of Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove and Poole Harbour that the Jurassic Beast sportive is renowned for. Views stretch out towards the Isle of Wight and make up for the up-and-down nature of the final few miles. Don’t miss this – it’s a test worth taking.
