At over 100 miles and 8.000ft of vert Strade Shropshire Long is a tough but very rewarding day in the saddle. The hills come from near the start with some big lumps at the 20 mile point. We reached the highest point at halfway as we ride away from Clun Castle which is followed by a long and tasty descent before some more steep stuff, some of it mega as we had back to the Shrewsbury HQ. The great news is the last 5 miles are rapid downhill!

An awesome medal, beer and hot BBQ sausage await you back at HQ.
