The Arrow sportive

The Scott GB Sportive series comprises of two events for 2012. The Arrow and Long Leg.6 May - Long Leg, Surrey17 June - The Arrow, Herefordshire. Two great events sponsored by Scott bikes, and courses designed to be both scenic and testing. A long and short distance will be available. www.gbsportive.co.uk

The Course

Starting and finishing at Berrington Hall the courses will head west south west towards Hay-on-Wye and the border.

Course markers will be black arrows or writing on luminous yellow background. Follow the arrows and instructions.

Everyone will be on the same course until the 1st split in Hay-on-Wye. The longer course will head up river towards the first of its climbing. Meanwhile the shorter course starts climbing from here...The split will be signposted and will be after the first feedstation.

Both courses rejoin further on at the second feedstation before the second round of climbing starts for both courses. Both follow the same route back to the finish.

More details to be published soon but we can guarantee there will be some hills to tackle..

The feedstations will be offering GU Energy, homemade brownies and flapjacks, and water.

Please note: This event is not a race. Anyone seen treating it as one will be discounted. All riders must adhere to the Highway Code at all times and must be courteous and considerate to all other road users. This means only riding 2 a breast when it is safe and reasonable to do so and allowing cars to pass when safe to do so. Riders should expect to encounter car, heavy goods vehicle and agricultural traffic aswell as horses and their riders.

The road surface on the whole is good quality. But there are parts of the courses that are uneven and muddy so look out for potholes!

Some of the descents are steep with sharp corners. Please take care and from personal experience expect the unexpected!
