The Clun 50

Here is the route for the Clun 50 - set for Sunday 28th June 2015.  This route features two significant climbs - neither very steep but both quite long.  484m of total climbing with the final challenge leading to a fast descent back into Clun.

It's designed to be a good challenge for the new sportive rider - nothing too steep and with plenty of easy riding in between.

The sportive is part of the Tour d'Arts Alive day of cycling activities in Clun - more at

Route overview:
A 12km run out of Clun on fairly flat roads will warm you up and then a right turn starts you on the long climb up to Edgton before a good descent to Aston-on-Clun and the first food stop.  Further "bumpy" lanes take you over towards Bucknell and then a very gently rise up to Chapel Lawn before a final long climb and fast desent into Clun.  Route is actually 46km in total.
Highest point - 350m, lowest point - 124m
