The Raptor Sportive is a great ride that explores the many miles of remote cycling country in and around this outstanding area – quiet roads and lanes throughout – along with breath taking scenery and challenging ascents.  Come and ride some of the roads that Wiggo did to get ready for the 2012 Tour de France ……….
