Ordnance Survey Equalizer Sportive

07/02/2016 - Colchester - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

Get your legs pumping in this early-season test - the Ordnance Survey Equalizer will show you Essex's best cycling roads to kick the New Year off on a high. Your resolution for 2016 was to ride more anyway, right? You may as well start now on this rolling course that will kick-start your core fitness into action. The largely flat rural roads provide a rolling route to ease you back into weekend mornings in the saddle - but don't be deceived by this area's low-lying lands as this sportive packs in more than 2,500ft of climbing action from start to finish of the Epic course. The rocky route profile runs through the scenic villages of Higham, Polstead, Wissington - and then after the course split in Bures. The gradient only really levels out consistently after reaching Henny Street and Middleton - by this point, more than half way around. And the unpredictable terrain returns when you'll pass back through Bures to get to the final straight, as you head up and down on the minor hills towards the finish line, where you will be handed a finisher's medal and well needed PowerBar recovery product.
