Can you tame the beast?? The Jurassic Beast Sportive is set along Dorset's historic Jurassic Coastline. The Jurassic Beast arguably has some of the best Vistas out of all the UK's sportives, with breath-taking views of, Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove and Poole Harbour. Quite roads and spectacular scenery are waiting for you at the top of the hills as your reward for conquering some leg pumping climbs.
In addition the Epic route heads north for a loop of the Dorset Downs taking in their stunning views. You will enjoy the panoramic views of distant Somerset from Dorset’s highest point Bulbarrow, the picture postcard view of Milton Abbey School Playing Fields on the way down and the model village of Milton Abbas.
To improve this now legendary course, the 2012 route will take riders down to the Sea front at Swanage offering them an unspoiled sea view stretching over to the Isle of Wight. This event jammed packed full of views as well as climbs!
Starting from the popular family friendly tourist attraction of the National Tank Museum, you can combine this magical sportive with a day out for the whole family
The event includes all the sophistication you would expect, including: Showers / Toilets, electronic timing, well stocked feed stations, tarmac parking, over £10 of free energy products, event photography, mechanical support, bike wash facilities and most importantly an enjoyable and extremely well marked course!
So all you need to do is turn up and ride!
