NEW FOREST RATTLER WEEKENDER - Racecheck 2022 GOLD award winner!
3rd & 4th June 2023 | Moyles Court School | Event Pack
We have a full weekend of sport for you to experience. Get in a good training weekend before the main triathlon season! Choose one event, two events or be epic and do all three! Any combination goes.
Saturday Cycle Sportive
The New Forest Rattler is the original New Forest Sportive, in the stunning New Forest National Park. Set up in 2012 by a passionate cyclist, this family run event puts the rider in the heart of everything it does. The event evolved in 2019 when Triathlete Kelly got involved and decided it was too much of a great opportunity not to spend the weekend swimming, cycling and running! The Cycle gives you three route options to choose; 47 miles, 82 miles or the Epic 100 miles. Each route takes in the very best of the New Forest where you will encounter the famous free roaming wildlife. Horses, donkeys, pigs, deer and cows all roam free in the New Forest so don't be surprised if there are a few donkeys chilling out in the middle of the road. The ride is fully supported with a mechanic, medics, feed stations and well sign posted route. You will be rewarded at the end with a fantastic medal.
*Under 16's can ride the 47mile route with an adult. Just choose the 47mile Child ticket.
Starts: 07:30 - 08:30
