Route Details - 4 Routes, What's your distance?

 

 

 

 

 

     

Starting and finishing in the small village of Horton, all routes are rural and scenic along quiet lanes taking you through some beautiful countryside.

The Sodbury sportive routes have been designed to give a great day on the bike. Unlike some sportives, we're not trying to make the routes as tough as possible by including every hill in the local area. We select nice roads while trying to balance the joy of flat sections with great climbs and descents.

The route distances are also designed to be balanced with the ascent so to be enjoyable by the relevant riders. So as the distances increase so to will the ascent. This makes the rides great for new or less frequent riders, while the longer distances great for the more experienced.

Gold, Silver and Bronze medal target times for each distance give each rider an extra hare to chase and ensure everyone has a challenge.
