The 68 mile Charity Sportive takes place on Sunday 5th September 2021 from Knutsford. It has the perfect combination of flats rolling hills and technical descents, from Cheshire plains to the challenging cobbled climbs of Swiss Hill and Beason Brow passing Windgather Rocks and through the stunning Goyt Valley. With full signage, half way stop and refreshments all included we aim to make it the best sportive possible.
"Best sportive I have done..."
Le Route - 68 miles -110km (£22)
Cycle through Cheshire’s most prestigious towns and villages Knutsford, Mobberley, Alderley Edge, Prestbury, Bollington and Pott Shrigley. The spectacular route passes Windgather Rocks, the beautiful Goyt Valley, Cat and Fiddle, Blaze, Swiss and Wizard hill totalling 5500ft of ascent over 68 miles. The event includes similar roads as used on the 3rd stage of the Tour of Britain 2016 which finished in Tatton Park last year and across training roads used by the British Cycling Team.
Approx ride time 4hr 30mins.
Our "demi-Route" (30 miles) gives cyclists an opportunity to ride some of the full sportive route. The demi-Route cuts out the big climbs and cobbled sections but still covers some beautiful roads through Peover, Goostrey and Marthall. Approx ride time 1hr 30mins.
