The pro route (100km) is an extended version of our ever popular 75km route setting off from 8.30am. At Barnt Green, cyclists will leave the intermediate route travelling through Tutnall, Beoley and Alvechurch before re-joining the intermediate route towards the Lickey Hills and onwards to the finish line at Newman University.
Your registration fee covers the cost of hosting the event. It is your sponsorship money that makes a huge difference to the hospice patients and their families. There is no minimum sponsorship target, you are just asked to raise as much as you can and help the hospice provide a future where the best experience of living is available to everyone leading up to and at the end of life.

This was my very first sportive and so I was quite apprehensive as to what it was going to be like for a newbie. I am so happy to say I loved every minute. The course was very easy to follow due to the brilliant marshals and clear signage. Plus all the cyclists were very friendly and helpful. I'm so glad I took part. - Kalda (2020 Participant)
My daughter and I did the 25km ride and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was excellent, it was very well signposted and the marshalling brilliant. I thought it was organised well and certainly had a safe feel to it. Registration was a doddle and the food afterwards was very much appreciated. I personally enjoyed seeing those bits of Birmingham that you don’t always see or appreciate when driving in your car. Dean, 2020
The route was superbly marked, the volunteer marshals were all visible and the feed station refreshments were very welcome. It was probably the best sportive I have ever ridden and certainly the best organised. Lawrence
