The Rattler is certainly not the most difficult sportive on the circuit. Generally a flat route after the climb in the first couple of miles away from the start. The short sharp shock of 25% Blissford Hill only three miles from the end is then a minor sting in the tail. It is however without doubt the friendliest sportive I have ridden. A fantastic morning with the New Forest in stunning sunny summer glory.

Nice undulating ride with nasty hill at Blissford at the end; no marshals on the route and one R turn off A35 at Ashurst potentially dangerous. Animals on road a pain at times but part of the forest experience. Timing via chips on number cards a pleasure. Glad we started early as it got very hot!
