Now in its sixth year, the Broughton Castle Cycling Sportive 2018 is based in the grounds of Broughton Castle, near Banbury. With the various sportive routes winding their way through the north Cotswold Hills this event offers a challenge for every level of cyclist.
There are four sportive routes available on the day, from a family fun ride to a Monster 100-mile lung and leg tester.
Riders can find four challengeing Strava segments on the hillclimbs:
- Larkestoke Hill – 2km at 8% average gradient
- Draycott Climb – 1.2km at 6% average gradient
- Snowshill Climb – 2.9km at 5% average gradient (only on the 100-mile ride)
- Whichford Climb – 1.7km at 7% average gradient
