Sport & Fitness
Forest of Bowland Sportive, 100, 81, 35 Miles, Sun 29th Sept
The Forest of Bowland Sportive is a tough late-season test for the legs with over 8,000ft of climbing to tackle but you will be given just reward with superb sights and scenery as the Cumbria sportive rolls through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

At the start, the sportive leads out towards Milnthorpe Sands as the route enters its first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of the day, Arnside and Silverdale.

After a stint on the River Kent, the route dives south to Carnforth and on to the first course split. Short riders peel off west while Standard and Epic participants bear south to our second AONB of the day, the Forest of Bowland, where the course centres its loop for much of the rest of the ride, while also bringing about one of the toughest challenges in the Trough of Bowland.
