If you’re looking for two challenging rides to get those legs tuned up for that big race later in the summer, then we’ve got two circular routes through the stunning hills around Surrey and Hampshire. They’re designed to test everyone from keen amateurs to club riders and beyond.
The Big Fifty - 50 mile route
Start time: 08:30
The 50-mile route includes 3,400 feet of climbing, four refreshment points and follows the 75-mile route until Colemore, near Selborne. It then makes its way towards Hawkley where the routes join up again.
Butser or Bust - 75 mile sportive
Start time: 08:00
This route has 5,400 feet of climbing, six refreshment points and is a real test! After leaving the 50-mile route it heads south to East Meon, then up Butser Hill before turning north at Chalton. It goes through the villages of Buriton, Langrish and Steep before re-joining the 50-mile route near Hawkley. You’ll sleep well after finishing this route in a good time.
Keeping you safe and sound
All riders must wear a helmet. No quibbles. No exceptions. Even Bradley Wiggins will have to wear one if he comes along. (You’re more than welcome, Sir.)
All our routes are fully signed and marshalled to stop you getting lost, or helping out of you’ve got a problem. We’ve also chosen courses away from the busier roads to keep you safe and fume free. We’ll also have bike mechanics on hand to help with any last minute maintenance.
