Organiser's Description

Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With three routes to choose from and nothing technical we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.

Our penultimate Classic series event awaits with The Cranborne Classic, which crisscrosses the rolling countryside of Cranborne Chase AONB. The area is rich in history with the route passing through numerous Saxon villages including Rockbourne which is home to an Ancient Roman villa dating as far back as the Iron Age to the 5th-century.

With all four routes starting out from Salisbury Racecourse in Wiltshire the route crosses into Dorset, then Hampshire before returning back to Wiltshire. As you cross the county lines and the boundary of South-West and South-East England you’ll ride through free-flowing and rolling roads that won’t trouble your legs too much. So you really can enjoy the ride and your time on two wheels.

This ride really is about getting outdoors for time well spent on your bike and just ticking off quiet kilometers as you enjoy the charming countryside back roads that link these sleepy rural villages together.

Of course you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports.
