Black Shuck Sportive
A unique twilight event
The Black Shuck Sportive: Can you keep the the beast of the North Norfolk Coast line at bay?
As Legend has it. The huge black hell hound roamed the North Norfolk Coast bringing death to any poor soul (cyclist) that happened to meet it! The secret of surviving an encounter with this hound was to not stop cycling.
With the History lesson over, this cycling event aims to get everyone back to the event centre around 5pm for a BBQ (socially distancing). Held on a Saturday, The Black Shuck Sportive gives you an extra day to rest your legs before returning to work and school on Monday.
A Sell out in 2020 but unfortunately a storm which brought down trees and caused flooding meant we had to cancel the event. This was the 1st time since forming we have had to cancel a event.
There are three routes of approx 28 – 30 miles each + a family friendly up to 10 mile route to get the under 16’s and their families out on their bikes. The family route has been designed to have low traffic, not too many hills and also be rewarding. Best of all you get a brilliant medal to show off to your friends. (average distance approx 8ish miles)
The routes have a very good mix of beautiful countryside rolling hills and un-spoilt views.
The Thursford Collection will also host the Feed-zone which again will be the normal Norfolk Cycling Events high standard. Lots of food and drink!
This is very much a family friendly event so if your family doesn’t ride they can come along and use the outdoor adventure play area and join you for the post ride BBQ.
The Thursford Collection will provide their ‘posh BBQ’ and their bar will also be open. Norfolk Cycling Events will be selling fresh coffee, tea and home made cakes.
