Sportive Route Details:
'Costwold Monster 100' - 160km / 100 Mile. This sportive route will be one of the most challenging rides that you will complete all year. The 'figure of eight' course takes in several classic climbs of the area including Nebsworth Lane, Snowshill and Butlers Lane but is also full of smaller notoriously leg sapping Cotswold lumps and bumps which the area is famous for in the cycling world. Feed stations will be located at mile 30, mile 55 and mile 80. This one really is for the serious cyclist. It's recommended that you train for this ride in order to complete the distance. Timing - for the best 5 hours, for the indefatigable 8 - 10 hours. Riders on the Costwold Monster 100 will be required to start between 7am and 7.30am.
Costswold Tour 20, Cotswold Classic 50, and Cotswold Monster 100 routes will have full electronic chip timing.... so lets see what time you can do!
