Wolves-Wenlock sportive

17/09/2017 - Aldersley Leisure Village, Aldersley Rd, Wolverhampton WV6 9NW - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

A new sportive for Wolverhampton.  The route takes backlanes to Ironbridge for a ride past the famous river crossing.  Up Jigger's Bank - long but not that steep and a favourite training hill for local riders, and then back over the Wrekin which has an 18% final section.

First food stop is in Little Wenlock, then a fast route over to Hugley and a big climb up Wenlock Edge.  From there it's over to Broseley for a fast drop back into the Gorge, another look at the Ironbridge and a climb to the 2nd food stop.

Yet another drop into the Gorge and climb back out completes the challenges for the day.  Return to Aldersley via quiet lanes.

The 60 mile version takes a different climb up Wenlock Edge (shorter but steeper).  The 35 mile ride visits the Gorge only and has one food stop.

Chip timing and free hot food on return.  Plenty of free parking at the venue.
