    From Sherborne – known for its Abbey – you'll do a loop in the Northern territory of Dorset, taking you out through the narrow lanes around Yetminster and Chetnole. This is a route that will continually throw in a few major surprises around each tight turn and it packs a lot of diversity and two major climbs into its 45 miles (73 kilometres).

    The climbs naturally don’t compete with Alpine passes, but you’ll still need some extra teeth to get up them. So a compact is definitely recommended for this ride!

    You’ll then wiggle back through the much faster, rolling lanes of Fifehead Neville to Sherborne, where you can take a well-deserved sit down in one of its many cafés and boutiques.
