TEST YOUR FITNESS WITH THIS STUNNING SPORTIVE

The Black Legend is the tale of forbidden love, passion and murder, played out on top of the highest and most sacred hill on the WiltshireBerkshire border. 

The Black LegendSportive will take you right past this historic place .... after a bit of a climb of course!

Set in the beautiful countryside of  the Berkshire, Lambourn and Marlborough Downs, the three well designed, anti-clockwise routes, roll along quiet country lanes passing through picturesque country villages.  Dust off your bike and/or test out how well your winter turbo sessions have gone by trying one of the EPIC(80Miles), STANDARD (65Miles) or SHORT (45Miles) courses.

Each of the three courses starts and finishes at the John O'Gaunt Community Colllege in Hungerford, a 10 minute drive from Jct 14 on the M4.  Or if you prefer to come by train, its a 5 minute cycle from Hungerford train station.
