Official supplier of post ride recovery beer for the Borwell Cycle
Drawing it's inspiration from the Barkley Marathons, the Borwell Cycle is on the boundary of what is possible.
The concept is simple: the clock starts (even if you don't) at 7am and stops at 4pm, and within this time you must complete all 3 routes of the Spring Classic sportive in the order of 87K, 60K and 70K.
Unlike those taking part in the Spring Classic sportive, you will not have access to the pre-ride food and, apart from being allowed water at the refreshment stop, you must be entirely self sufficient.
For your own safety, and to keep you on your toes, there will be a cut-off time of 6 hours for completion of the 87K and 60K routes. If you are outside this time you will not be able to continue.
Completion of the 87K and 60K routes within 6 hours 45 minutes, however, will qualify you as a finisher of the Borwell Sprint.
To prove your completion of the course there will be information to collect on each loop,
making the event a test of concentration as well as endurance.
