There’s something for everyone in our Sprent ride on Sunday 25 August, with loops within loops to cater to four different routes.
We’ll start at 11 am together from the Sprent Recreation Ground and Community Centre, which is about 600 metres south of Sprent Primary School.
But then we’ll split into four groups depending on your appetitite for hills and distance. All the routes are on quiet country roads with unsealed shoulders that cut through rolling farmland and plantations.
Option 1, the Sprent–Kindred loop is 11 km long with a 164 metre ascent that takes in rolling hills along its length.
Option 2, the Sprent–Upper Castra loop is 22 km long with a 344 metre ascent which includes a slow, gradual rise and then downhill. Map.
Option 3, the Sprent–Preston loop is 38 km long with a 640 metre ascent that continues for most of the ride before the welcome downhill return.
Option 4, Coast–Preston, is the Sprent–Preston loop with the ride to and from Ulverstone added, making the total ride 70 km.
Bring your own lunch to eat at the end of the ride at the Sprent Community Centre.
