Event: The Southern Sportive 
Date: 13 September  
Location: Petersfield, Hampshire

The Southern Sportive - the original South Downs sportive - celebrates its 10th edition on the 13th September 2015.  The Petersfield-based event was first run in 2006, back when there were only about a dozen sportives in the country, and (if you lived in the south) you had to trek to the Dales or Lakes or remote corners of Wales to find them.  

Part of the event's success has undoubtedly been the course, which covers the best roads in the South Downs and takes advantage of a wealth of superb riding both north and south of the ridge to create one of the finest rides in the country.  

The route bisects the massive rolling chalk downs several times, travelling over the tops on its way to and from the coast and passing through some of the most picturesque villages in the country along the way. The result is a flowing route that will test and treat you in equal measure. Four route options (71, 112, 155 and 192km) give you all the choice you need for your ideal ride!
