EVENT POSTPONED: UPDATED 27/03/2020
It is with great sadness that we have today made the difficult but responsible decision to postpone this event, due to the ongoing situation regarding the Coronavirus.
We have been monitoring all government recommendations and therefore based on the latest information and in the interest of staff and rider safety and putting the greater needs of the wider community at the forefront, it’s the most responsible thing to do. We ask for your patience while we evaluate the next steps in this ever-changing situation. We will aim to be in touch with you again via email within the next 72 hours regarding the ride credit, transfer or refund options available.
With a mixture of spectacular views, leg-pumping climbs and historical scenery, the Jurassic Beast Sportive 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, the two routes first head 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. Near Puddletown, riders will take on a southerly direction as they push on through Dorset, cycling through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and tackle 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 Sportive – it’s a ride worth taking.
