10/02/2019 - Mammoth Lifestyle - Reliability Ride

Rating: Rate this Event Now

The Long One:

  • 58 miles
  • 2818ft climbing
  • British Cycling Difficulty Grade 2 
  • Minimum ave speed: 12mph

The route starts and finishes at Mammoth Lifestyle in Milford, Stafford and heads south west to begin with. The first mile of the route is uphill but gives way to a long mainly (and gently) downhill section from there to Penkridge and the 6mile point of the ride.

From Penkridge, the next 4 miles of the ride are probably the toughest of the route, climbing consistently to the high point of the ride at 10 miles. From this point up on Cannock Chase it's good running to Yoxall at the 25 mile point with the road predominantly downhill and the prevailing wind likely at your back.

Yoxall marks a change in the character of the course and in contrast to the big, long climb of the opening, the second half of the route is punctuated by repeated, short climbs, made tougher as the course turns to the north west raising the possibility of cross winds.

Uttoxeter marks the point where 2/3rds of the course is under your belt and from here you'll join the short course for the RideStaffs Spring Forward sportive until Milwich Bank where you tackle the toughest climb of the final section of the route.

From the top of Milwich Bank it's 10 miles to the finish and just one climb of note (Sandon Bank) stands between you and coffee back at Mammoth.
