The Black Shuck Sportive: Can you keep the the beast of the North Norfolk Coast line at bay?


As Legend has it. The huge black hell hound roamed the North Norfolk Hills bringing death to any poor soul (cyclist) that happened to meet it!   The secret of surviving an encounter with this hound was to not to stop on the inclines of the North Norfolk Coast line.


With the History lesson over, this cycling event is geared to both the the cyclist who enjoys the challenge of taking in the best hills of North Norfolk and the leisure cyclist who loves beautiful country views and quiet undulating roads.


There is a choice of three routes which can be mixed and matched, The 1st route is a hilly route which takes you east towards Cromer. You will be going up and down the ridge line of the Norfolk Norfolk coast (beware of Black Shuck)!!  This route is prefect if you like a challenge with the maximum slope of 14% up railway hill...!


The 2nd route option heads west out to Stiffkey and takes in some slightly longer but less steep hills. Maximum slope is 6% up Market Lane Salthouse. You will be glad to hear we miss out Bard Hill this year! This is a beautiful course which passes through some beautiful North Norfolk villages. This Route is prefect for all cyclists.  (This will be the mandatory route / loop to start the event if you are doing 2 or more loops)


The 3rd route option is a gentle undulating route which passes through beautiful North Norfolk villages and quiet country lanes. This route is prefect for families or any one new to the sport.


Each loop is approximately 25 miles and you can buy up to 4 loops (100 miles) which can be mixed and matched on the day.



Cyclist Fighting Cancer will be fundraising to help kids with cancer so please give what you can or  download a sponsorship form and ride for them.
