Eden Classic Cycle Ride

May 10, 2015

Pedal in paradise on the new Eden Classic cycle ride, which promises to be the most memorable and distinct cycling sportive in the UK.

What’s it all about?

The Eden Classic is a spectacular new mass-participation cycling event and is set to become one of the top cycling events of the year, offering riders the unique chance to pedal the length of Eden past the world-famous Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes as they start their challenging journey.

What happens?

Riders will ascend steep hairpin bends up the side of the former china clay quarry before taking a choice of three routes along the south Cornwall coast and then finishing back over the finishing line in the heart of Eden.

Organisers believe that no bike event in the country can offer such a scenic start and end point.  Eden in spring will be bursting with colour and life. Add to this the grandeur of some of the most stunning coastal roads in the world, this will be a very special ride.

How can you take part?

Riders will be able to bring the rest of the family into Eden free of charge, so everyone can enjoy a great day out.

The Eden Classic will offer riders a choice of three route options ranging from a short yet challenging ride with spectacular views of 35 miles, to a middle distance of 62 miles and a long ride for the experienced sportive rider of 100 miles.

Tempus Leisure will be partnering with the Eden Project to organise the event.  Eden and Tempus are both charities based in Cornwall. Other cycling activities will also be available especially for children and less experienced cyclists.

The three route options offer typical cycling terrain associated with Cornwall. Both Eden and Tempus have made the most of the undulating south coast and all riders will pass through picturesque villages and coastal beauty spots whichever route they choose.

Further details and pre-entry online available on the Eden Project website.

Entry fees:

Short distance route (35 miles) £23

Middle distance route (62 miles) £27

Long distance route (100 miles) £31
