Rating: Rate this Event Now

With a month still to go, the popular Farcycle Follyfest Sportive (FFS) is filling up faster than in previous years and is destined, once again, to be a sell-out. Known for its unique blend of challenges, food and sociable atmosphere, this event takes place in Faringdon, Oxfordshire on August 8.

Uniquely placed straddling the Berkshire Downs and the Cotswolds, contestants have three options:

  • The Gentle Challenge - 35 miles of spectacular rolling Cotswold countryside; just enough to extend those who think cycling should be a relaxing, pleasurable experience,
  • The Full Monty - 70 miles of even more breath-taking countryside with some added challenges for people who cycle regularly,
  • The Epic Test - 111 miles with some serious bits although, if you can bear to press pause on your competitive streak for the odd minute here and there, the scenery of both the Downs and the Cotswolds is worth taking a peep at ...

Returning competitors, of whom there are already many entered, will have even better routes to ride than those we were commended for in 2014. Feedback has been incorporated into a new set of routes that incorporate the glorious scenery with better road surfaces.

Once again, we can promise the best food, friendly marshals and a festival atmosphere at the finish. For those who wish to make a weekend of it the festival of music and entertainment in Faringdon's historic marketplace will continue into Sunday. A bike treasure hunt will round off the cycling activities on August 9.
