The Clun 100

Here is the first draft of the new sportive we're organising for this summer - Sunday 28th June.  It starts in Clun, and actually goes for 110km and a total of 1,428m of climbing (Ride with GPS estimate though likely to be more in reality).

Route overview:
Go East out of Clun for a fairly flat warm-up ride for 12km then an easy hill over to Bishops Castle and more fast riding all the way to Churchstoke.  A short, stiff climb gets you to Priestweston and the first food stop at 34km - stock up because you then go immediately up a very steep hill.  More climbing gets you up and over Stiperstones then a good descent to Bridges and on to climb the northern shoulder of the Long Mynd before descending again.   
You turn after Picklescott and start riding towards Church Stretton, a quick ascent up the steep Minton Rd and then a longer climb up to Edgton gets you descending to Aston-on-Clun and the second food stop.  From here is is easy roads through Brampton and Chapel Lawn before a final long hill and then a fast descent into Clun.
Highest point - 430m, lowest point - 124m
