The Endura Lionheart Cyclosportive - Sunday 20th March 2011

Positioned in the midst of over 3,000 hectares of woodland, in the heart of the Somerset countryside, Longleat is the ancestral home of the Marquess of Bath. Its stunning grounds were designed by 'Capability' Brown in the 18th century - with huge flair and the usual disregard for budget, he created an awesome parkland of breathtaking quality in location and size.

200 years later, not only have the trees grown in stature, so too have its residents; the world famous Lions of Longleat.
'Ride alongside the furry giants; albeit on the other side of the fence!'
Spin Events are offering riders the ultimate venue for this classic sportive that will start and finish in front of Longleat House.
The sportive course will offer participants the opportunity to experience a combination of deep, wooded coombes and challenging hill climbs that render riders breathless as they pedal past historic monuments. This, coupled with the excitement of riding besides the big cats at Longleat, will undoubtedly provide riders with a challenging and memorable day.
Entries for the 2011 Endura Lionheart Cyclosportive open on 1st January 2011, and cost £28.00. Both 100km and 100mile rides make the most of South West England's beautiful countryside and quiet roads and will feature not only the most stunning surroundings of Longleat, as the start and finish point of both rides, but also well-stocked feed stations in village halls, electronic timing, event photographers and a limited edition Endura Lionheart medal for every rider; not to mention Mrs B's 'hotpot', warming you up again at the finish line.
To make sure everyone completes the routes as safely as possible, technical backup will be provided, as will a broom wagon. National Escort Group (NEG) motorcycle outriders will be there to accompany participants.
Get your biking season off to a flying start and join us for a 'Spin'.
