Highclere Castle Cyclosportive

Be part of a festival of cycle challenges and charity leisure rides taking place at the prestigious stately home location of Highclere Castle, Nr Newbury, Berks. We have heard that this is a fantastic challenging course and is all set to be a superbly organised event.

There are three cyclosportive challenges proposed for the Highclere Castle Cyclosportive on the 20th August 2006: 110 mile individual, 110 mile 4-person team challenge, and 50 mile individual. Plus two leisure rides supporting Fire Services National Benevolent Fund Charity (FSNBF): 50mile ride and a shorter route option of 32miles.

The courses we have designed will test your physical ability and mental strength to judge pace, endurance and stamina to the limit – 3000metres of ascent, classic undulating Hampshire Downs countryside, hammer time along the Test Valley and then the Scorpion’s sting on Inkpen Beacon.
