Like all velo29 short routes, the event is designed to give those new to Sportives a great day out without setting them to harder challenge!
They are never flat boring routes, always the scenery is stunning, enough hills in there to make it a challenge and some wonderful roads you won’t usually ride along.
The Regatta short route is one of our more challenging shorts and not aimed at riders with zero cycling experience. There are some significant climbs however there is no time limit and no shame in pushing up the step bits! We do encourage people new to the sport to take up the challenge however suggest you study the maps closely and be sure of the challenge ahead!
We have great support on the rise for you, the signage is well placed and extremely extensive. We’ve got trained Motor cycle marshals looking after you, a service car and should it all go wrong, a broom wagon to bring you home!
There are feed and water stations on every route so a good excuse to pull over and have a rest!
A great entry into Sportives or a progressive challenge for those riding some of our earlier season short routes.
