Starting at Coalport and heading out towards Bridgenorth, Kinver, and beyond and back via Patshull Hall, Lilleshall, and the Wrekin. The Wrecker offers two ride options of 50 or 100 miles , both of which take in some of the finest scenic lanes and tracks in Shropshire and the West Midlands. Three fully stocked feed stations will be on offer along the long route with two for the shorter route. Riders can start from 08:30 on the day. The event supports the Severn Hospice, who provide specialist palliative care for patients living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and supports their families.
