The full 115 mile route consists of two separate loops and 10 featured climbs or for riders who don’t want to take on the full distance we’re also offering two half distance route options each featuring 5 featured climbs.

The west loop (which is ridden first on the 115 mile ride) is probably the easier of the two and contains the first five climbs including Leith Hill, Combe Lane and Box hill whilst the east loop contains the last five climbs including Kidds Hill (aka The Wall), Yorks Hill and Titsey Hill.

New Forest Spring Sportive @ Somerley House, Ringwood
Apr 18 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm
New Forest Spring Sportive @ Somerley House, Ringwood | England | United Kingdom

Discover the beauty of spring in the New Forest. Starting from the grounds of the splendid Somerley House estate, The New Forest Spring Sportive offers three stunning Hampshire routes, catering for all abilities of cyclist. Whilst the short route is perfect for those new to cycling sportives, the epic and standard routes offer the more experienced rider a great early season challenge.

Now in its 11th year, the New Forest Spring Sportive is one of our most popular events and has become a welcome start-of-season test for many cyclists.

As you ride and take in the views of the rolling scenery, there will be a number of hills to challenge your legs – plus a test to come near the end – with short and sharp climbs popping up every now and again to keep you on your toes. Beautiful New Forest villages of Sway, Beaulieu and Lepe are passed through before you head north and back into the centre of the district.

Quickly in and out of Lyndhurst at the halfway point, you’ll soon take on the events major climb of the day, just outside Nomansland. It’s steep, but fairly short, so you should be able to dispose of this quickly and continue on your way. From here, it’s downhill all the way – with one spiky hill exception around Stuckton and the final feed stop – as you roll back around the edges of the Forest, towards Ringwood, and claim your medal at the finish line.

The New Forest Spring runs on both a Saturday and Sunday, due to its popularity, and offers far more than just a ride. When you return from your scenic journey through Hampshire’s finest forest, you can choose from a selection of options in our food village, grab a post-ride pint from the beer tent and chill in the sunshine listening to great tunes from the band.
