Is this an Event for Me?

The Andover Cycling Festival event is ideal for both experienced and inexperienced Road and Off Road riders

The longer 80 mile offers a great challenge for the more experienced riders, while the 50 mile route is a great route for those riding their first sportive ride event.

The 15 mile family ride is very popular with 12 to 16 years, accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Our town centre schools ride for Under 12s is on a closed circuit and will be on one hours duration, so that riders can stop and start as they wish. There is no set distance and all starters will receive a medal on completion of their ride once the chequered flag is waved.

All route schedules allow plenty of time to complete your ride and take in the picturesque scenery en route, together with refreshment stations.


Is my bike ok for this event?

The road route is suitable for all Road Bikes, hybrids, gravel bikes  and all E Bikes.




There's an 85 mile route, a 50 mile route, and a 15 mile family route. Take your pick!
