The Drover Cycles Shropshire Devil

11/03/2018 - Shropshire / Powys - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

The Shropshire Devil is an ideal start to the sportive season. This road sportive will be based from Minsterley near Shrewsbury and both long (86 mile) and medium (50 mile) routes will showcase the best of the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Borders. The area is superb for cycling, with quiet roads and stunning views. Be warned, though, there are some hills! Both routes tackle Long Mountain and riders on the long course face the brutal climb up the Burway from Church Stretton, topping out amidst the spectacular scenery of the Long Mynd. Expect sheep and curlews, rather than lorries and cars, for company and enjoy a feast of homemade sweet and savoury treats at our well-stocked feed stations.  

All routes are signposted with our easy-to-spot fluorescent pink arrows which seem to go down well with our sportive riders with comments including "spot on signage we never missed a turn" and "perfect for me, didn't miss a beat all day". We have well-stocked feed stations run by our friendly team where you can fill up on sweet and savoury snacks, energy food and a range of hot and cold drinks. We have dairy free and gluten free options and, if you let us know you dietary requirements in advance, we will be happy to cater for particular diets, allergies or intolerances. You'll also get mechanical and first aid support at the feed stations.

Please get in touch by calling 01497 822419 or email if you have further questions. We promise you the very best in terms of event venues, support staff, mechanical help and food to keep you riding high!

Early bird entry by 31st January is just £27.  After this date the entry fee is £29.  On the day entry costs £35.
