This ride explores the captivating countryside and surrounding scenery throughout the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. Balancing quiet rural roads that flow through meadows and woodland and packing in three testing climbs in Win Green, Bulbarrow and Milton Abbas, this all-round sportive offers something for every type of rider, from the outright beginner to the seasoned sportiviste.
Please note that the routes for this event are currently being plotted. The distances advertised are what we are aiming to achieve but they may vary by a couple of miles. We will announce via our newsletter (sign up at the foot of this page), Facebook and Twitter when the new routes are live.
Crossing over the River Avon and skirting around the western edge of the New Forest, this sportive is not short of spectacle. Tired legs aside, you’ll ride roads that deliver panoramic views of distant Somerset from Bulbarrow, Dorset’s highest point. You’ll also pass through the quintessentially British picture postcard village of Milton Abbas before tackling the climb of the same name. North Dorset’s North Downs are the icing on this tasty three-county cake.

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.
