Giant Kendal – Castle Sportive

Giant Kendal – Castle Sportive

Details

Bring your bicycling shoes and enjoy Lowther Park and surroundings in all their glory.

Add a touch of style to your sportive and join us at the majestic Lowther Castle for a ride around some of Cumbria’s best and quietest roads. With views that will distract you from the odd cheeky hill and a stunning end to your adventure riding to the finish through the impressive castle grounds.
We have two routes for you to choose from, 100km or 50km, both equally spectacular with around 5120ft or 2000ft of ascent. On the longer route we also have a ‘feature’ climb, and for those that like a bit of competition this will be a Strava segment with prizes for the fastest man and woman (and we might even throw in a few spot prizes too!).
For those that don’t want to ride on their own there will also be groups for each route led by a member of the Giant Kendal Team.
