Starting our winter spin from Preston College, we head north out of the city and on to some gently undulating roads first taking an easterly course as far as Longridge before winding our way back west wards, weaving our way passed the outskirts of the Forest of Bowland.

Upon reaching the small village of Inskip, standard riders will head south back towards Preston and the warm. For those willing to brave a longer winter ride we continue west for a ride that will explore more Fylde’s country roads, stopping by the villages of Weeton and Wrea Green before cutting through Kirkham on the way back through to Preston.

At the finish, you will be met by a warm welcome and can rest assured knowing that you have made the most of the Sportive season.

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
