5TH & 6TH SEPTEMBER 2020
The date is set for the biggest ever MAD SUMMER HARE!
After very positive feedback from an overwhelming amount of participants last year we are keeping this years ride exactly the same.
The Sunday sportive will remain limited to 1200 riders and will follow the same format as previous years
However, we will be expanding the event on the Saturday 5th September!
There will be family rides, a shorter Summer Hare Sportive (50miles) and on-site rides within the grounds of Umberslade Farm estate including a pop-up velodrome!
We will also be opening up the camping on the Saturday night with an onsite cafe/bar, entertainment and, most importantly, great food and drink!
We really want this to be a 'friends and family' event that promotes the health and wellbeing that cycling offers
All riders signed up to the Mad Summer Hare sportive will get discounted prices for all other rides/activities. More details to follow!

The Mad Hare
CELEBRATE YOUR SUMMER LEGS
The iconic Mad Summer Hare Sportive returns on September 6th 2020 at the fabulous Umberslade Farm Park.
Being so late in the Summer season your legs and lungs should be at their strongest so we've set a challenge to test both your physical and mental strength - 1, 2, 3 or 4 hill climbs - you choose how many.
Beware though, these aren't just any hills, they're iconic Cotswold hill climbs that have been tormenting cyclists for decades. Pushing onto the next one is not easy but there's a different shiny medal if you do.
HOW MANY CLIMBS WILL YOU CONQUER?
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
One of the best sportives I've done - well organised, excellent signage, really good route
Amazing route, well organised and great feed stations to keep us going. The volunteers were great cheering us up the climbs and encouraging everyone
A gorgeous ride, plenty of food, a great atmosphere - what more could you ask for?
"....an ideal event for a late summer ride"
