This year's Route 66 Sportive is being held on Sunday 14th June 2020.

We have moved the event back to June, from it's usual slot in early May so as to get more predictable weather, for everyone's enjoyment.

We have three courses available: BRoute 99, Route 66 and Route 33. BRoute 99 was new for 2019 and is intended to provide that extra challenge over and above what we previously offered.

Start and Finish will be from The Lodge, Chetwynd Deer Park, Newport, Shropshire, TF10 8EU.

Nova Raiders will be making a donation of all proceeds after costs to Severn Hospice, our local hospice, that has touched the lives of many of our members in some way.

Cycling through the beautiful Shropshire countryside with iconic views of The Wrekin, Long Mynd and the Shropshire plains.

For BRoute 99, registration is from 7.30 am. Riders start from 8:00 am.
