This off road cycling event in numbers:
47 km, 29 miles, 2,682.5 feet of climbing
Entrance Fee: £35
Get stuck into this demanding 29 mile route taking in the best of the local trails, and grand views. The route has 2,682.5 feet of climbing, but as we start and finish at sea level, you get to coast down 2,682.5 feet of trails too.
The route starts with a gentle roll out of town and easy off-road climb up the Priest’s Way and past the Square & Compass Pub. A short climb to Swyre Head will reward you with world class views along the Jurassic coast. Another ridge run will then take you to Corfe Castle. A steady climb along the ridge past the ancient burial mounds is followed by a meandering and often technical descent across Aglestone Heath and on out to Old Harry’s Rocks. To end there is just one stiff climb and a very technical descent back to the finish.
