Newbury RG20 9HP
For our second event of 2017, we’re back in Newbury for a fantastic route to help burn away any festive excess and kick off the year in style.
Located on the doorstep of the Wessex Downs, Burghclere is ideally located to provide an incredible day in the saddle from start to finish. Beautiful English countryside and quiet roads make for a lovely winter spin, while the gradual (and occasional sharp!) climbs will keep you warm in the January air!
Sportive Cross is our mixed terrain event series that’s designed with cyclocross and adventure road bikes in mind. They’re an ideal way to add some extra interest to your riding especially over the winter months not only helping to keep you fit but also great for testing your bike handling skills. You can expect roughly a 50:50 mix of road and off road sections on the local bridleway or byways and with this ride we’ve pretty much managed to tick the full list of terrains featuring everything from smooth tarmac to gravel, grass, sand and mud sections.
