Organiser's Description

This late season sportive, set in the beautiful rolling Herefordshire countryside between the Malverns and the Wye Valley, is a fantastic adventure, from one of the best breweries in the West Midlands. With two scenic routes to choose from - 60km (37 miles) and 85 km (53 miles) - this sportive is for everyone!

These stunning routes are set in an area labelled the 'Hop Shires', and take riders along quiet Herefordshire lanes, around the verdant local landscape with plenty to admire in the distinctive red soils, hop farms, apple orchards and views of Hay Bluff and the distant Welsh mountains.

After tracking the route of the River Wye, the longer ride skirts the Much Marcle ridge before heading up towards the Malvern Hills, the inspiration behind many of the works by Edward Elgar, not least of all the rousing Land of Hope & Glory.
