On 28th May 2017 BF Adventure is hosting a "Coast to Coast" cycle event
Join us for this incredible coastal cycle with routes of 100, 60 and 38 miles around the south, west and north coasts of Cornwall, passing through beautiful Cornish countryside, seascapes and Cornwall’s Industrial Heritage.
Starting at BF Adventure the 100 mile route will cover The Lizard and Land’s End Peninsulas and a 35 mile North coast ride with stunning sea views and a total elevation of 7700 feet.
This ride will challenge you all the way round, testing skills and stamina!
The 38 miler, with a 2550 feet elevation, and 60 miler, with a 4350 feet elevation, both take in the Lizard Peninsula; the 60 miler also covers Mounts Bay.
All Sportives start and finish at BF Adventure, just off the main road outside Penryn.
Feed stations and a sandwich lunch are included with your fee, as is a commemorative finisher’s medal. There are plenty of other cafes and loo stops en-route.
As members of the BCU this event is fully licensed, well designed and organised by a great team of professionals.
