Trans Anglia XC Sportive -Final Update

posted 10 Oct 2013, 13:17 by Walden Velo
The "on-line entry" via British Cycling has now closed. However, you can still enter on the day!

Please head for the Airfield Gate Entrance at Carver Barracks and our Marshalls will direct you where to park. Gates open at 9.00am (riding starts from 9.30)

The Pavilion across the playing fields is where our HQ is based and you will need to allow sufficient time to queue to complete on the entry on the day and then receive your map.

A fantastic choice of three routes "Short", "Standard" or "Epic" across some of the oldest known pathways and bridleways in the Country.


The "Short" is 30k and has been designed for the Novice Rider or for families wishing to take part and enjoy the fantastic countryside. (All children must be over the age of nine and accompanied by an adult)  


The "Standard" is 50k and like the "Short" can be ridden with MTB, Cross or and XC bike, a great route along some super trails (over 18's only)

The "Epic" is 80k and is our "Head Line Ride". It can be ridden on MTB or Cross Bikes and entrants must be over 18. Its pretty unique as MTB Sportive Rides go and we think that you'll love it.

All are mixed terrain and for the "Standard" and "Epic" include some technical areas and some great climbs and descents. (all surfaces are Bridleways or similar)

£15 for adults and £8.50 for under 18's for entry on the day

All three routes 30k/50k & 80k are colour marked and tagged, but if you need a download for your Garmin, then click on these links:-


A great chance to experience hiddens routes and lines carefully planned by our MTB experts.


Starting from Carver Barracks, Wimbish and returning to race HQ.


Full facilities provided, including toilets, showers and changing rooms for both men and women. "Safe" off road parking.

Tea, coffee & cakes provided at the HQ Stand (these are chargeable but at sensible prices!) - and all proceeds from this will go to the Injured Soldiers Fund at the Barracks"
