Falling Leaves Rough Ride - Sunday 28th October

If ‘off the beaten track’ riding is your kind of thing (and it certainly is ours!) then the Falling Leaves Rough Ride Sportive might be the event for you!

Organised by Fulcrum Events, this sportive’s longest route is 75km with a shorter route of 42km also on offer; but don’t let the shorter distances deceive you! This sportive is designed for road and gravel riders and takes you across some pretty gnarly terrain to test both your legs and your bike setup!

If, like us, you’ve ridden the Tour of the Black Country at some point than this sportive will feel familiar with regards to the type of terrain you will encounter.

The small sum of £23 (+ admin fees) will secure your entry to this late October ride, and for that you get a fair bit of bang for your buck!

As well as the usual first aid/mechanical assistance/feed stations/event photos/etc that you can guarantee at most sportives, the Falling Leaves ticket price also includes a rather fetching limited edition Falling Leaves cycling cap (which if you ask us, cycle cap lovers, this more than justifies the cost, let alone the awesome off road route!)

So to find out more about the event and to enter online simply visit the Falling Leaves website.
