Giant Kendal - Castle Sportive
18/06/2017 - Lowther Castle, Penrith - Sportive
Weeks to go until event: less than 8 weeks
The inaugural Giant Kendal - Castle Sportive starts and finishes at the majestic Lowther Castle. It follows a figure of eight route for 58 miles with 5118ft of accent (90k/1560m) that allows spectators to support from the splendour of Lowther Castle grounds.
Ideally situated as the start and finish for a stunning ride around quiet Cumbrian lanes and amazing scenery with a 'feature' climb thrown in the first half so those legs are still nice and fresh. For those that like challenges we have additional spot prizes based on Strava course segments.
If a bike ride isn't your thing, Lowther Castle is the perfect location for a family day out, and we have designed the route so riders will come back through the grounds during their ride for supporters to give them a well-earned cheer!
Entry to the Giant Kendal - Castle Sportive also includes two free child places to the Lost Castle worth £14; these must be used on the day of the event. One adult must accompany the children at a cost of £9.
