Tour of Worcester Challenge Ride & Sportive
The Tour of Worcester returns for its 6th year on October 14th.
Classic Malvern climbs feature, but the route then takes in Stanhope Bank before Tenbury Wells and a short excursion into Shropshire before returning to tackle the 'killer' option of Wynniattes Way (a 25% monster) but only if you want to!!
After the feed point supplying energy drinks, bars, gels, fresh fruit and cake (visited twice), there are five more listed climbs before returning to Worcester and a hot meal to replenish your energy stores.
The start and finish is at Worcester racecourse in the centre of Worcester, with an easy run in and out of the city and a cycle route finish to avoid the traffic.
There are two main sportive routes available: a full 92 miler and a shorter 60 miler. There is a feed for the shorter route and the two stops for the long ride (at 30 miles and 60 miles approx) are at the same location.
Riders will benefit from Wheels in Wheels' well-proven signage, plus extra warning signs where they're required.
Spare wheels and, if your bike breaks down, a full service tool kit, will be on offer. There is also a broom waggon should your legs fail you or for terminal mechanicals.
Sign on from 17.00 to 18.30 on Saturday 13th, and again on Sunday morning from 07.00am to collect your timing chip and recognition number to help match you up with the pictures our photographer will capture of your efforts en route.
Both rides start from 08.30 to 09.00, in small groups of 10-15, at minute intervals.
The extensive car parking is situated by Registration in the centre of the racecourse, so please follow the signs to the HQ/Registration.
