NEW for 2013!

The Cycling Weekly Malvern Mad-Hatter Sportive

Sunday 1st September
The route takes you through the 3 counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and Gloucestershire, with the Malvern Ridgeway never out of sight. You will tackle the Iconic Malvern Hill, which is a long but gradual climb. Your effort will be rewarded with perfect views of the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains of Wales. A simply sensational view!

After a great descent, the route weaves it’s way between the Malvern and Cotswolds hills. Don’t worry the route from here is not all hills though – a large part of the route is undulating at best. This area is a fine example of vibrant, patchwork countryside, with quiet roads and lanes providing excellent riding conditions.

With 3 routes to choose from (Epic 104 miles, STD 74 miles, and Short 46 miles) you can choose how galactic a challenge you have.

Highlights – The climb up to the top of the Malverns, then the view to the Brecon Beacons, and the Black mountains of Wales from the top!

Although pre-entry has now closed, you can still enter on the day at no extra cost, so why not come and give it a go?
