HISTORY

The Forest of Dean Classic sportive was conceived over 12 years ago in a cafe in Pau after an Etape du Tour when many Brits had been bused to the finish as the event was so hard and different from any UK events. The Forest of Dean was designed as training for the big European events such as the Etape with as much climbing as possible and a good overall distance. The event was first run in 2005 which at the time was one of only 18 sportives in the UK!

We now limit the event to 500 riders to offer a better experience and changed the format this year to a two day with a 100km warm up ride the day before the classic event.
