Cycle Southampton Sporterium

Event Date: 
Saturday, June 20, 2020 - 7:00am to 9:00pm

This brand new event for 2020 will be bringing a festival of cycling to Southampton. The day will be full of two wheel themed activities with the main events being two sportives and a set of criterium races.


The Criterium

A Criterium is a short-distance race where riders compete around a lapped circuit to complete the most laps possible in a short amount of time. The Cycle Southampton Crit will be a city centre based route around the two main city centre parks! This wide and fast track will make for some quick and exciting racing with a large pack.


The Sportive

The standard sportive is the longest distance on offer for this event with the route just over 100km! This scenic route begins in the city centre, and will see riders travelling through the beautiful surrounding countryside heading north of Winchester through New Alresford and across to Stockbridge before coming back down towards Southampton through Romsey.

The short Sportive is designed for people who are taking on their first Sportive or would just like an easier ride. The route will start in the city centre near the Guildhall, and take riders through the beautiful surrounding countryside to just south of Winchester, before finishing back in the heart of Southampton.
