This year the sportive rides head north of Andover. Once again we have some amazing views for you to see, leafy lanes for you to discover and welcoming refreshment stops. Enjoy some long downhill stretches, together with the sense of achievement of having cycled over the various hills on the route before returning to Andover.
Both the 50 and 80 mile sportive rides are ideal preparation for anyone training for the Ride 100 event in London at the end of July. Both events have a little climbing soon after the start, offering a warm up and work out, with a flattish mid-section, then some more climbing in the second half of the rides and an easier final 10 mile run back into the finish line in Andover before a lap of honour on the closed circuit in the town centre.
