Do you want a challenge? Do you want to be part of Mark Cavendish’s official Sportive? The chance to ride with the winner of 30 Tour de France stages, then look no further and be part of this amazing event. This bucket list ride across the Cotswolds, starts and finishes at Cheltenham Racecourse, combining challenging climbs, picturesque villages and breath-taking views of quintessentially English landscapes.

Start: Cheltenham Racecourse
Finish: Cheltenham Racecourse
Promo Village: Cheltenham Racecourse

All three Rise Above routes have been designed with your enjoyment at the heart of them, but also to create a testing challenge whatever your ability. Rise Above will capture the beautiful scenery of the Cotswolds whichever route you choose you will tackle the testing climb of Cleeve Hill in the finale of your ride, while both the Purist and Extremist routes will also feature the Snowshill climb, described by Cycling Weekly as being “like the gripping yarn of an Agatha Christie novel, starting off gently before gradually getting serious.”

Take a look at the profiles and choose one of the three routes designed by Mark.
