Date / Time
Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 8:00 a.m.
Length 80.00 miles (128.7 km)


The Black Legend is the tale of forbidden love, passion and murder, played out on top of the highest and most sacred hill on the Wiltshire-Berkshire border. The Black Legend Sportive will take you up this very same hill! Set in the beautiful countryside of the Berkshire, Lambourn and Marlborough Downs, the three well-designed, anti-clockwise routes, roll along quiet country lanes passing through picturesque country villages. 

A choice of three course: EPIC (80 miles), STANDARD (65 miles) or SHORT (45 miles).

Each of the three courses starts and finishes at the John O’Gaunt School in Hungerford, a 10 minute drive from Jct 14 on the M4. Or if you prefer to come by train it’s a 5 minute cycle from Hungerford train station.

Event village with plentiful parking. Wave starts between 08:00 and 10:00. Full and clear route marking. Manned feed stations on each course. Immediate finish-line results. Sweeper wagon and first aid. Finishers' medal. Hot food and drink to buy at Ride HQ.
