The Cycle Southampton Sporterium returns for 2023 to get people on their bikes!
The Sporterium offers a choice of two distances, the 60km sportive and a 100km criterium (which, despite the name, is also a sportive rather than a crit race).
Both rides will start in Southampton Guildhall Square in waves of 125 heading out into the Hampshire Countryside with the short (~60km) and a standard (~100km) routes that head east out of the city then north towards Winchester before coming back to Southampton through Romsey.
The routes will be on open roads with friendly marshals and plenty of feed stations to keep you going on the course. This event is perfect for both first timers and experianced riders looking for a relaxing day with friends on their bikes.
The short Sportive is the shorter of the two routes, designed for people who are taking on their first Sportive or would just like a shorter ride.The route will start in the Southampton city centre near the Guildhall, and take riders through the beautiful surrounding countryside of Fair Oak, Shawford, Braishfield and Romsey before finishing back in the heart of Southampton.

This scenic course begins in the Southampton city centre, and will see riders travelling through the beautiful surrounding countryside heading north of Winchester, through New Alresford and across to Stockbridge before coming back down towards Southampton through Romsey.
