Cycling Weekly Malvern Mad-Hatter

30/09/2017 - Ledbury - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

As a mid-summer sportive test, the Cycling Weekly Malvern Mad Hatter pretty much has it all. Weaving around rural roads shared between the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, the route will give you tough climbs, fast descents and amazing views across the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains of Wales and more.

Please note that the routes for this event are currently being plotted. The distances advertised are what we are aiming to achieve but they may vary by a couple of miles. We will announce via our newsletter (sign up at the foot of this page), Facebook and Twitter when the new routes are live.

The first loop of the ride is relatively easy going, as you start south of Great Malvern and ride an anti-clockwise circle around the town. Passing through small villages such as Rhydd, Powick and Alfrick, you'll touch the outskirts of Worcester before stopping for the first feed stop. Gradient up until this point is rolling and free-flowing, allowing you to settle into the ride.

Starting to head back towards Great Malvern, the toughest climb of the day rears its head, and Malvern Hill is yours to conquer before you can pass on to Herefordshire and beyond. The iconic climb is a long and gradual continuous effort, and can become steep in sections.
