A choice of two rides in the South Shropshire Hills - mostly on small rural lanes designed to make the most of the dramatic terrain and views in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty-

- a 106k route with 1,400m of climbing is testing, but not extreme,

- a gentler 63k route with 630m of climbing.

South Shropshire features some of the mostly beautiful cycling countryside in the country. Bordering the soft rolling country of Herefordshire to the south, and the dramatic climbs on the Shropshire/ Welsh border, it is ideal cycling terrain for those who want a challenge, and to enjoy the dramatic scenery.

Both rides are British Cycling registered , and start in the historic town of Ludlow, overshadowed by its imposing 11th century castle.They take place on routes whch are well known to local cyclists,  away from traffic and main roads.

The sportives will be fully supported with signposting, two (one for the 60k route) refreshment stops, first aid support,ride maintenance  and a broom wagon. Rides will be manually timed.

The sportives are  the main rides in Ludlow's  Cycling Festival - with several other family orientated rides  and activities such as local led rides ( for individuals and families), and other family entertainment.. In addition there will be food, cakes and refreshments.

The event is organised on behalf of by Macmillan Cancer Support who will benefit from all of the festival's proceeds.
