Les trois frontières (The three counties) is a remapped and reworking of the Bridport Dagger sportive.
This Sportive will now touch, Devon, Dorset and Somerset, keeping parts of the old route (The good bits), and either flattening out much of the ride or making the climbs less steep.
It’s the start of the summer and you want to see what those legs can do in what is, an event that’s still a challenge, just not such numerous tough climbs. Reflective of a true Dorset sportive, with an undulating hilly but rolling landscape with patchwork field views, quiet back roads and chocolate box villages.
With aid stations and on course support, you ride, we will help you finish.
The Short is an ideal opportunity if you want to be involved in a Sportive but don't want to have to deal with multiple miles of riding,Its Dorset so expect a few tests but we are happy for under 14's to attend for FREE, (short route only) as long as they are accompanied with an paying adult, with no cut off for the short.
The route is a stunning tour of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, its rolling countryside, wide roads (As wide as we can, it is the countryside after all), and will visit many beautiful villages along the route.
The medium route will be a visually stunning ride through the beauty of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, we have purposly changed the route to have a much more rolling feel, less steep climbs, and more long flat straights, the climbs that are included are followed by the leg loosener downhill sections or rapid open flats, we think it should make for a more rounded sportive.
The Long can be described as free flowing, as the action takes place on rolling roads that won’t trouble your legs (Much), with the occasional small peak to tackle here and there.
The whole route is rolling, with more a step up of gradual climbing that an all-out up effort, the biggest test of the whole ride happens at 140km, Abbotsbury hill a 1.5 km max of 16% elevation.
