As you set off from just outside Brackley, you'll pass through the sleepy villages of Shalstone and Chackmore, with quiet country lanes connecting them, before going over the top of Silverstone - the historic race track on your left on the way through.

Pushing on, you'll dip into Towcester before it's out into the open once more and after a stretch on a long and straight country lane, it's time for the first feed stop of the day just outside Farthingstone. One or two short and sharp climbs may crop up around this part of the course, but climbs tend to be rolling, brief and joined up, making this an ideal all-weather event - ideal for the early season elements.

As you weave through rural roads that lead to villages such as Charwelton, Byfield and Culworth on the way back to the ride HQ, you can afford to empty the tank near the end as the gradient will stay the same throughout. After reaching Biddleston, you're nearly there, and ready to claim a well-deserved finisher's medal once over the line.

The Sigma Sports Cobbler Classic Sportive is certainly not our most difficult event and is an ideal chance for some riders to try and complete their first century, without too much climbing to worry about. That said, to the inexperienced or undertrained, 100-miles is still a serious day of pedalling, and not something to take lightly. Thankfully, riders can still enjoy a day in saddle on either our Standard or Short routes, making this event one that is suitable for cyclists of all abilities.
