Palace to Palace – May 20

This year’s Palace to Palace ride in aid of the Prince’s Trust is technically more of a ‘Castle to Castle’, but with so much good work done for charity and such a glorious ride on offer Cyclo hates to be pedantic. Starting in the grounds of the 1000-year-old Warwick Castle (map here), arguably the UK’s finest, the route takes in some glorious Warwickshire villages via quiet (but not closed) country lanes and minor roads to end at the impressively ruined Kenilworth Castle. At just 45 miles, this is far more of a charity fun ride for those of mixed ability rather than an all-out brutal sportive, but with grand late spring weather in prospect (?!) this looks like a great event for all. Entry fee is £35 with a request for participants to raise a minimum of £45 – that’s a neatly round £1 per mile – for the charity, which here will go to support disadvantaged youngsters in the West Midlands. Start times are allocated and staggered with waves of around 35 riders a time setting off every two minutes between 8 and 9am. Further details and online entry at
