Giant Kendal – Castle Sportive
June 3 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm£20 – £30
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.
Looking out across the Lake District National Park, Lowther Castle has over 130 acres of hidden gardens, woodland, breath-taking views and from next year will also have a newly built cycle path straight from the Castle grounds so you can ride, traffic free, to nearby villages (full details available soon).
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!). If you prefer a more sociable day out and don’t want to ride around on your own there will be a number of groups led by the Giant Kendal Team which anyone is welcome to join.
