The Broughton Castle Cycling Sportive 2024 starts and returns to the grounds of Broughton Castle, near Banbury, with four stunning Sportive routes 100 mile,50 mile 75 mile and 20 mile winding their way through the North Cotswold Hills. This event offers a challenge for every level of cyclist.

If you enjoy cycling with others as a team, then our “Team Rider Challenge” will appeal to you. The "Team Rider Challenge" is available to riders on the 100 mile, 75 mile and 50 mile routes. A trophy will be presented to each winning team.

To promote real teamwork within the group – the winning team will be based on the time of the fourth rider home. To enter the “Team Rider Challenge”, you must be a team of a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 riders, all cycling the same route and have registered as a team on the website prior to the event date.

In 2024 we are offering a free registration for the sixth rider in the Team Rider Challenge, to claim this free place the team captain must register all six riders simultaneously via our Website.

 

The event is organised by Banbury Cherwell Rotary Club which is a voluntary Service Organisation. All net proceeds from this event will be donated to Rotary and local charities.

'Fun ride 10km / 5.5 miles: no need to register online as entry is payable on the day. A flat(ish) family friendly route around the quiet roads and tracks immediately surrounding the Castle.

'Cotswold Tour 20' 32km / 20 miles through undulating North Oxfordshire ironstone countryside - the course winds its way through the villages of Shutford and Epwell. There are no big hills on this route we promise, but by the nature of the terrain it will be a challenge if you've not done much cycling before. There will be one feed-station on the route at approximately half distance. The Cotswold Tour 20 might suit people who are new to Sportive cycling or medium ability but who still want a good cycling challenge. 

'Cotswold Classic 50' 80km / 50 miles: this route has been designed to incorporate several classic hill climbs. The route is designed for the more regular cyclist who is accustomed to riding more challenging and hilly terrain. There will be two feed-stations on this route - the first after 25 miles at Kingham and the second after 34 miles at Moreton in Marsh. The route is a testing ride and you should expect it to take somewhere between 3/5 hours.

‘Windrush Endurance 75’ 120km / 75 miles: this route has been designed for the rider who is looking for a ride more demanding than the 50 mile route but not so challenging as the 100 mile route. This route includes two major climbs . There will be two feed-stations on this route.

'Cotswold Beast 100' 160km / 100 miles: this Sportive route will be one of the most challenging rides that you will complete all year. The course takes in several classic climbs in the area but is also full of smaller notoriously leg sapping Cotswold lumps and bumps which the area is famous for in the cycling world. There will be two feed-stations . This one really is for the serious cyclist. It's recommended that you train for this ride in order to complete the distance. Timing: for the best 5 hours, for the indefatigable 8/10 hours. Riders on the Cotswold Beast 100 will be required to start between 7am and 7.30am.

The Cotswold Tour 20, Cotswold Classic 50, Windrush Endurance 75 and Cotswold Beast 100 will have full electronic chip timing.... so, let’s see what time you can do!

Riders who complete the 100, 50, 75 and 20 mile routes will be entitled to a hot meal on return to Broughton Castle.
