2017 Routes

Interactive maps and GPS downloads below

All routes have been carefully designed and ridden by a group of regular South Shropshire riders.  We had plenty of compliments for the 2016 course and have made a few tweaks to make them even better.  There's also a new "Inbetweener" route for those who want a little bit more than the Short option.

Routes all offer near-car free cycling on quiet lanes with many scenic viewpoints.  We're investing in top quality signs to make finding your way even easier and continuing our partnership with British Cycling, who supplied special signs and banners to help the event go smoothly.

En route there will be cake stops at village halls for refuelling, volunteers will once again be baking homemade cakes and flapjacks. Free cuppa back at the Clun HQ once participants have finished plus hot food will be on sale from popular cycling foodistas Podium Catering.

Food Stops:

Long One - 3 stops - Priestweston at 33km, Stretton at 66km and Bucknell at 95km

Inbetweener - 2 stops - Norbury at 25km and Bucknell at 55km
