Jurassic Beast Sportive Weekend

Posted on Posted in club news, Holidays, Memories

The only way is Epic!

So this week the mighty Rouleurs decided to take on the Wiggle Jurassic Beast sportive down in lovely Dorset so here is the best of the action!

We had a great crew of in on the fun including myself(Matt), Richard, Denise, Patricia, Graham, Simon, Keiran, David, Mon, Chris and Roger. And even saw a few others at the event itself. Most of us were staying in the picturesque Lulworth Cove which was only a few miles from Wool where the event started so an ideal warm up with even a few lumps to get the legs pumping! 

A great weekend all in all and thanks to everyone for coming along!

The route

Honourable mentions to all who did the sportive but especially to all the Epic riders, the route really was epic and came in at a whopping 99 mles and lots of lovely lumps making it over 6000ft of climbing.

And the peloton is split!

Thirsty Rouleurs at The Black Bear pub in Wool. Lots of compliments from riders around the course about the lovely kit so we are doing our bit spreading the clubs good name hopefully.

Lots of happy Rouleurs and empty glasses. This was a lovely cider pub called The Castle just down the roaad from the YHA. A fine array of ciders indeed.
