Venue: Somerley House, Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24 3PS

The New Forest Spring Sportive is one of our most popular events and has become a welcome start-of-season test for for many cyclists. Due to its popularity, the event runs on both a Saturday and Sunday – and usually sells out before the day. Take this as a sign that you’ll get your cycling fill from this sportive, which takes in much of the stunning New Forest on the route.

As you ride and take in the views in the rolling scenery, there will be a number of hills to challenge your legs – plus a test to come near the end – with short and sharp climbs popping up every now and again to keep you on your toes. Beautiful New Forest villages of Sway, Beaulieu and Lepe are passed through before you head north and back into the centre of the district.

Quickly in and out of central point Lyndhurst, you’ll soon take on the events major climb of the day, just outside Nomansland. It’s steep, but fairly short, so you should be able to dispose of this quickly and continue on your way. From here, it’s downhill all the way – with one spiky hill exception around Stuckton and the final feed stop – as you roll back around the edges of the Forest, towards Ringwood, and claim your medal at the finish line.

Please remember, no dogs are permitted on the grounds of Somerley Estate

As the event is likely to sell out well in advance of the event, please book early to avoid disappointment.

Ride hard, raise money, defeat dementia

Times and Awards
Times and Awards

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 our results page. 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.
