THE NEW YEARS REVOLUTION

24 miles over three counties, this route combines public bridleways and byways over the Cranborne Chase area of outstanding natural beauty passing Roman landmarks, ancient drovers tracks and picturesque villages..

The HQ is at Sixpenny Handley Sports Pavilion where there is ample free parking, showers and a real ale bar running after the event.

Here are some FAQs about the events.

Is it a race?

No, this is not a timed event and there are no prizes for finishing in a particular time. However many riders are keen to push themselves and see how they perform on Strava! Others are content to make use of the number of country pubs and teashops on the route.

What kind of riding is it?

The routes are designed to be a series of long bridleway sections linked by a few country roads and lanes. Most of the terrain is fairly easy, but we've thrown in a few technical climbs and descents that will really have you concentrating hard. There are a couple of short cut points if the bike is playing up or the legs are running on empty!

How do I enter?
