Cobbler Classic – Saturday 19th October
Where: Turweston Aerodrome, Biddlesden Road, Westbury, Brackley, NN13 5YD
Taking its name from the shoe-making history of its Northamptonshire surroundings, the Sigma Sports Cobbler Classic Sportive will take you through some of the county’s best sights and cycling roads. There are no major climbs on the course, leaving you to set your own stride on an undulating route that never levels out but in fact helps with the odd short downhill push every now and again. As you set off from just outside Brackley, you’ll pass through the sleepy villages of Shalstone and Chackmore, with quiet country lanes connecting them, before going over the top of Silverstone – the historic race track on your left on the way through.
