Stevenage Off-Road Challenge

Stevenage Off-Road Challenge

This event was first held in 2006.

Our Off-Road Challenge ride is an off-road ride through the bridleways and country lanes around Hertfordshire covering a tasty 50 or 65 kilometres.

Time allowed: 3.5 to 6.5 hours

Price: FREE

The 2020 event is informal, and during the 3 week window will operate like an Audax Permanent, without formal Brevet Cards or manned controls. Mobile phone photos should be used, to show start and finish times and reaching an information control or turning point. No information will be available at the start, so please print the information you will need in advance.

Route Sheets & Maps

Although Brevet Cards will not be provided this year, you can, optionally, download a 2020 brevet card , which will help you to keep track of your progress and provide details of what information you should record.

You can download and print the route information. The routes for 2020 are the same as those created and tested in 2019. Suggested printer settings for the route sheets: A4, Landscape, Duplex, Short-side left (for printers with duplex capability).

The GPX files are available.

Detailed maps with the route overlaid are also available. They are suitable for riders not wishing to use (or who don't have) paper Ordnance Survey maps. The maps are intended to be used together with the Route Sheet. The OS Cycling map includes km markers and small green flags that correspond to cues in the Route Sheet.
