There are three routes, 30, 73and 100km. The 30km ride is for families and the less experienced cyclists. The more challenging 100km sportive route and the intermediate 73km sportive route both have refreshment stops and chip timing. The well-signed routes wend their way through the Warwickshire lanes, with the 100km sportive making a brief foray into Worcestershire via Feckenham.  There are a couple of fords en route for the adventurous, but don't worry there are alternative paths! With only a couple of climbs, it's the ideal event both for the experienced rider and those looking for their first sportive.   There are several National Trust properties on the routes, which are well worth exploring. Both routes turn right opposite Baddesely Clinton, a moated manor house. After the routes split, the 30km route passes through the grounds of Packwood House, a much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary while the 100km sportive route skirts Coughton Court, an imposing Tudor house set in beautiful gardens with a collection of Catholic treasures and links to the Gunpowder plot. 

Women are especially welcome. Free parking is provided at Solihull School nearby

Refreshments, and toilets, will be available at the hospice before and after the rides. Mechanical support will be provided at the start for those last minute glitches and sports therapy at the finish for those tired muscles. There are two refreshment stops with toilets on the 100km route and one on the 73km route

Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and anyone under 18 must have a signed parental consent form.

**On line entry closes at midday on 24 April Entry on the day will be available, subject to space, but at a higher cost**
