Sunday 22nd September 2019. A choice of 3 fully signposted, supported routes on the quiet back roads and lanes of Shropshire

Testing at 1,430m of climbing, but not extreme – making the most of the dramatic terrain and views in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Total climbing of 655m includes rolling sections on picturesque, quiet South Shropshire roads. The ride finishes with the major climb of Whitcliff and a dramatic swoop into Ludlow

South Shropshire Tors 30k

Gentle back lanes to Leintwardine, returning via Whitcliff, with stunning views across Ludlow

Nearly 1300 riders since 2014. What do they say about the ride?

A fantastic event, well organised and a great friendly atmosphere. The ride was challenging, but beautiful and very quiet lanes. A real gem of a ride.

Philip Gardener

A lovely sportive on some of South Shropshire’s lesser-known roads. Really appreciated the gluten-free cake at the stops!

Catherine Coley

Brilliant route – very well thought out. Really well organised! Would be a good ride for people new to sportives due to the high level of support.
