The Brewin Dolphin New Forest Summer Sportive takes you out to conquer the wonders of the New Forest, promising to be packed with wildlife and scenic views over the national park. You are sure to have a spectacular day.
You will cycle along the coastal route via Calshot, Lepe, and Exbury, passing through the gorgeous Lepe Country Park along the way. The beautiful village of Beaulieu is also on this route.
Short route riders will take on the climb to Hatchet pond then along to Brockenhurst to rejoin the rest of the pack. Epic and Standard riders head north west to Lyndhurst, passing the quaint forest railway station at Beaulieu road. After a quick glance at the bustling town we’ll push on up to Ashurst before tracking along the eastern edge of the forest.
From here we will head deeper in to the heart of the old royal hunting ground, eventually reaching the small hamlet of Fritham. At this point the Standard riders will carry on south towards Bolderwood, while Epic riders continue their journey north for a loop that winds its way in and out of the most northerly border of the forest. Heading south, the riders regroup just before passing under the A31, striking a definite course south towards the focal point of the ride - a spectacular stint through Ornamental Drive. It is here you will see the best the New Forest has to offer.

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.
What our customers say about us
Brilliantly organised event! I'm very new to cycling and did this event on my own but still chatted to lots of people and had a great day! Would definitely recommend UKCE to everyone! To top it off it was a lovely warm day in the beautiful New Forest! Excellent
I would just like to say a big thank you to all the marshals and support mechanics on the Wattbike Falkirk Ride on Sunday; the guys were absolutely amazing. We had several issues en route including punctures, cramps, a crash and ever-decreasing morale, but these guys supported us right to the bitter end and got us through the epic course. I have never attended such a well-organised event; even the signage was spot on. So well done and thank you!
superb organisation and in ride support. The New Forest event was the besr organised event I completed in 2019
Did the Watt Bike 40 mile Sportive today, had a lovely time. Great route on quiet roads with challenging hills, all well signposted and a lovely atmosphere. The marshalls & staff deserve a special thank you for standing out for hours in truly gruesome weather. The feed station was well stocked with all needs catered for, the bike wash stocked up with Muc-off products and the soup at the end were the icing on the cake. Southwell racecourse had brilliant facilities. Shame about the weather being freezing cold & sooo wet but totally worth it, had a lot of fun. Thank you to all involved.
Just completed the Eye up in Rippon the Standard absolutely brilliant well organised and good signage. Have done a few e events this year. 2020 i will be in my 80th year so looking forward to taking part in UK Cycling Events .
well organised event. The new forest route was stunning with beautiful wild life on the way
I went on the Box Hill sportive. It was a very well organized event, with marshals at the busiest junctions and signage at every junction, plus feed stations. There was a proper start/finish line with chip timing. The route was downloadable in advance as a .gpx file. Very nice scenery in the surrey hills area of outstanding natural beauty.
I completed the Ay Up Yorkshire this weekend. The EPIC course was my first 100mile ride, and I really enjoyed the challenge. The big climbs are close enough to home to give them another go!
Really well-organised, excellent course signs, and great to see medical support available out one the course.😀👍
A great day out with great staff and well planned.
Had one amazing experience. My first 100 miles on the bike in amazing route, friendly staff. Really recommend UK cycling events. Can not wait for the next one.
