The second annual Giant Kendal Castle Sportive starts and finishes at the majestic Lowther Castle. It follows a figure of eight route for 58 miles with 5118ft of accent (90k/1560m) that allows spectators to support the riders from the splendour of Lowther Castle grounds.

Lowther Castle

Lowther Castle is ideally situated as the start and finish point for a stunning ride around quiet Cumbrian lanes with amazing scenery. There are two routes for you to choose from, 100km or 50km, both equally spectacular with around 5120ft or 2000ft of ascent. On the longer route there is a ‘feature’ climb, and for those that like a bit of competition this will be a Strava segment with prizes for the fastest man and woman (and they might even throw in a few spot prizes too!).

Admission: Early Bird (up to Sunday 7th January 2018) – £25 for 100km and £20 for 50km.
Standard entry (from Monday 8th January) – £30 for 100km and £25 for 50km

Included in your entry is: An awesome day of riding with lots of friendly people!; Fully signed course; Free stuff at registration; Strava segment challenge with prizes (you must join the Strava Group for this); Last minute, emergency bike mechanic support at start; Post-ride food and drink; Two free childrens’ tickets into The Lost Castle at Lowther Castle (must be accompanied by a full paying adult, offer only valid on Sunday 3rd June 2018 and is non-transferable); Event insurance provided by British Cycling.

If a bike ride isn't your thing, Lowther Castle is the perfect location for a family day out, and the route has been designed so riders will come back through the grounds during their ride for supporters to give them a well-earned cheer!
