This year we're running 4 different routes up to 100 miles PLUS a family route.
The routes will all be waymarked so no-one will get lost, with back up vehicles just in case anyone needs any assistance. All levels of cyclists are welcome.
This year we're running a 25mile, 50mile, 70mile and 100mile route, plus a 10mile family route.
25 Mile Route
The 25 mile Challenge heads North out of Hereford, a reasonably flat route for the first 10 miles to Bodenham village and the first water station before starting the climb towards Pencombe. A fairly long steady climb but the views from the top towards Hay Bluff are your reward before starting your descent back down past Lower Hope Farm and the A417 . The route back to Hereford passes by Tyrells Vodka, (a little early to take an aperitif, maybe later) Withington , Sutton St. Nicholas and back to Hereford via Munstone. The route back to Hereford is again reasonably flat with a few short climbs and descents.
The 25mile (27 miles) route taken at a steady pace is easily manageable for cyclists of limited abilities, if you have to walk part way up the hill towards Pencombe, no worries as the rest of the ride will be ok.
