Shropshire Mynd 2015
02/08/2015 - Ludlow Racecourse, Shropshire - Sportive
Featuring a 14 mile climb, Shropshire Mynd is a gem of a ride. Shropshire is called the secret county because it's full of scenic gems and known for being off the beaten track. But it's no secret to us! Shropshire Mynd criss-crosses the English / Welsh border so riders have the opportunity of climbing both Long Mynd (in England) and Long Mountain (in Wales). Kerry Hill features on the long route which is so long (14 miles) it rides almost like a typical European climb.
The area is also steeped in history with fierce battles and the infamous 177 mile Offa's Dyke which the route follows as you head towards Long Mountain.
At KILO TO GO we go the extra mile to make sure you have a great day:
No need to queue - we don't want you queuing at the start of the day - we post your 'Ticket to Ride' pack prior to the event so that you don't have to come to the registration desk on the day.
ALL our finishers receive the following, no matter when you sign up: A HIGH5 taster pack, a pro-quality 750ml water bottle, a useful drawstring goodie bag, a finisher's medal, a certificate, and a short video of the moment you cross the finish line, plus more....
All events feature: class leading UHF electronic timing, event photography from one of professional cycling's best known photographers and his side-kicks, well stocked feed stations, and mechanical support. Toilets are available at all our HQs and feed stations for your comfort.
Medical Safety: Out on the route we provide motorcycle outriders and paramedic backup for your safety. Add to that our highly visible broom wagon that'll sweep up any riders that require taking back to the HQ.
Great signage: Riders always tell us that our routes have the best signage. Our highly visible magenta signs will direct you around the course and clearly mark route split points so that you always end up on your chosen route.
