This year's Route 66 Sportive is being held on Saturday 3rd July 2021.
We've moved the event from it's usual early May slot due to Covid restrictions.
We have three courses available: BRoute 99, Route 66 and Route 33. BRoute 99 was new in 2019 and is intended to provide that extra challenge over and above what we previously offered.
Start and Finish will be from The Lodge, Chetwynd Deer Park, Newport, Shropshire, TF10 8EU.
Cycling through the beautiful Shropshire countryside with iconic views of The Wrekin, Long Mynd and the Shropshire plains.
For BRoute 99, registration is from 7.30 am. Riders start from 8:00 am.
For all other routes, registration is from 8.30 am. Riders start from 9:30 am.
We encourage all riders to use the What 3 Words app so we can easily locate you if you need assistance while on the sportive.
Come and join us for a fabulous days cycling and socialising in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. It promises to be an amazing day!
We are delighted to announce that this year's Route 66 sportive is supporting two great local causes: Newport CC 'Bike Club' and Newport (Shropshire) Foodbank.
Nova Raiders' Chairman Gary Wade said:
"This is a fantastic opportunity for both Newport cycling clubs to come together and help support the local community, especially assisting young riders who are the lifeblood of our clubs. In addition to the Newport Cycling Clubs initiative the event will also support the Newport Foodbank in providing breakfast and holiday packs for those who have found the pandemic so challenging.
Nova Raiders and Newport Cycling Club are proud to help our local community and thank you all for your support in continuing to 'make the difference'."
