Bostin' Bridge Sportive

The Bostin' Bridge Sportive, will again start from Harper Adams University, just outside Newport, Shropshire, and will take riders on a choice of three fully signposted routes along predominantly country lanes and through the picturesque scenery of Shropshire with the longer routes getting up-close-and-personal with the famous Wrekin hill and riding along the banks of the River Severn and through historic Coalbrookdale, the birthplace of the industrial revolution, and past the iconic "Iron Bridge".

Gold route - 75 miles / 120km

Silver route - 60 miles / 100km

Bronze route - 30 miles / 50km

All three of the Bostin' Bridge Sportive routes follow the same exit out of the University campus, through Edgmond and out into Newport town before heading North into the Shropshire countryside. Riding through country lanes, past farms and through hamlets the route reaches the pretty village of Cheswardine, and the highest spot on the Bronze route,

before descending to the first feed station at Stoke on Tern. Shortly, after the feed station the Bronze and Silver routes turn South. The Bronze route remains fairly flat, as it heads for home through Ollerton, Great Bolas and back to Edgmond and the finish line. The Silver route turns away after Great Bolas and heads West to rejoin the Gold route a little after passing the creamery at Crudgington.

The Gold route continues after the first feed station to the pretty market town of Wem before turning South and riding past the ceremonial helicopter at the main gates of RAF Shawbury,

The Gold and Silver routes continue South riding towards the big block of rock in the distance, The Wrekin, crossing its height at its saddle, elevated some 255m, before coasting down to a new feed station for this event on the outskirts of Coalbrookdale. After suitable refreshments, the routes drop down through historic Coalbrookdale, on the banks of the River Severn, where the industrial revolution started in the 1700's and the iconic World Heritage Site "Iron Bridge" stands today. The routes pass the Bridge and continue along the river before climbing out of the Severn Gorge at Coalport. After an undulating section of country lanes the routes rejoin with the Bronze route just before Edgmond and then on towards the finish line.
