The Jurassic Beast Sportive has three routes on offer: the 100-mile Epic, 63-mile Standard and 36-mile Short option. 

The Jurassic Coast stretches from East Devon through to Dorset over 95 miles and is steeped in history. Dorset's lanes are picturesque and mostly traffic-free and quiet, making it a great area to ride.

Starting out at the National Tank Museum in Bovingdon, Epic riders split straight away as the route heads north and up through a series of unspoilt Dorset villages, throwing in a short and sharp climb every now and again – while the other riders pass the first after mile 10 just past Milton Abbas.

Continuing on, the next spike in gradient will follow just a few miles later, just before Shillingstone, followed by another as the route takes riders towards Ansty Cross.

The final stretch towards the coast will allow riders to take in the terrific views of Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove and Poole Harbour that the Jurassic Beast Sportive is renowned for. Views stretch out towards the Isle of Wight and make up for the up-and-down nature of the final few miles. 

If you're looking for a unique cycling challenge, sign up to the Jurassic Beast Sportive without delay!
