Organiser's Description

The Wiltshire Classic cycling event has always been a firm favourite with our riders, crisscrossing through 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 three routes starting from Salisbury Racecourse in Wiltshire, the route crosses into Dorset, then Hampshire before returning 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 kilometres 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 finisher medal and other goodies from our partners.

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.

Fantastic race through beautiful Wiltshire countryside. I took part in the short 30 mile distance with my 11 year old son. It was his first sportive and everyone on the course and the organisers were really friendly and supportive. It was a great experience for him and left him wanting to do another race! Would highly recommend this race to anyone and we’re looking forward to doing it again next year!
