FIRST MADHARE OF THE YEAR

The iconic Mad March Hare will be returning in 2021 for its 12th edition with riders from all over the UK. 

Being so early in the cycling season provides plenty of challenges: you need the fitness to conquer the hills, the physical strength to cope with the distance and the mental strength to overcome the inevitable challenging weather conditions.

Finishing is not easy - but there's a hot bacon sandwich and a real ale beer bar waiting for you if you do!

GOT WHAT IT TAKES?

RIDE

Ride a picturesque route through Worcestershire, Staffordshire & Shropshire countryside. We know the challenges of winter riding so we make sure that all madhares are supported along the way mentally & physically with our team at the top of the hills handing out sweets & the helpful mechanic team. 

EAT

You never go hungry on a Mad Hare event! 

There's a massive array of sweet and savoury options at the feed station plus hot and cold drinks to fuel your ride. 

At the end of your epic ride you'll tuck into the best bacon / veggie sandwich you've ever eaten. 

DRINK

There's a variety of energy drinks plus free tea and coffee  at the start and feed station. 

 

Plus there'll be a real ale beer tent for that all important ride debrief with friends.

2021 ROUTE 

Starting off in Longbridge, you will soon be on quiet, rolling country roads through the scenic villages of Clent and Kinver, the Severn Valley and into the stunning Wyre Forest.

After 50km of rolling roads you'll be able to refuel on copious amounts of sweet and savoury food at our indoor feed station and re-hydrate on energy drinks, tea and coffee.

 

You'll then enjoy the descent into Stourport and the the first bit of flat on the route. It won't last long though - at at Wychbold you'll start the ascent back towards Birmingham with a little kicker to get over the Licky hills which will feel like Alpe d'Huez on any overwintered legs.

The effort will be soon forgotten back at HQ though when you smash into the best bacon / veggie sandwich you've ever eaten and wash it down with a pint.
