The Raptor

The Raptor 63 mile Forest of Bowland Sportive

June 19 2022
Lancaster, North West, UK
Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

Join us in exploring the many miles of remote cycling country in and around this outstanding area – seldom is it ridden except by local enthusiasts (like us).  Quiet country roads and lanes are followed throughout – along with breath taking scenery and challenging ascents – that Sir Bradley Wiggins trained among on his way to winning the 2012 Tour de France. If its good enough for Wiggo ……….

This event has the makings of a great weekend break - as Lancaster is so easily accessed by both road and rail - there are even a choice of two great places to stay right on the Start / Finish line.
