Described as ‘a haven for cycling enthusiasts’ the Meon Valley and its surrounding area serves up some of the most spectacular and, at times, challenging, rides in the South-East of England. It’s also home to the Meon Valley Riser sportive, which offers three lengths of route at 47, 84 and 103miles. Brought to you courtesy of the organisers of the New Forest Rattler (August 16) this should be a doozey – though certainly not a doddle.
Race HQ is at Boundary Oak School (map details here) and your entry fee – £30 for the 84 and 103miler and £27 for the 47miler – gets you breakfast, tea and coffee pre-race, fully stocked feed stations, SAG wagon support and lunch after you’ve completed your ride.
Entries on the day will be subject to availability. For full event details see: cyclofanatic.co.uk
