The Raptor – Forest of Bowland 63 miler – 12 June 2022


forest of bowland sportive

-14Days -16Hours -48Minutes -21Seconds

A brand new style of cycling event – our Bellions are a cross between an Audax and a Sportive – using modern technology to reduce the need for event numbers, signage, marshals, timekeeping, mass starts and feed stations – using GPX, Strava and local facilities en route instead.

The Raptor starts and finishes on the outskirts of Lancaster, and is a great ride that explores the many miles of remote cycling country in and around the nearby area of Bowland.  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 ……….
