Rush the Ridge - Starts and Finishes at Newbury Showground.
Is part of the Adventure Cross Series feature interesting and challenging multi-terrain rides across trail, bridleways and lanes.
Adventure Cross routes are designed to be 100 per cent rideable on both mountain bikes and cyclo-cross bikes. The on/off-road nature of the routes make either machine a great tool, with each coming into their own at different parts of the course.
While cyclo-cross riders may put distance between themselves and the mountain bikers on the road sections, the fat-tyred (not fat and tired) brigade will find themselves at a distinct advantage on the more rocky or technical junctures. The choice of bike is yours!
Adventure Cross is physically demanding, especially on a 'cross bike or fully rigid mountain bike, and rewards skilful bike handling. It is an excellent cross training discipline for improving bike handling skills and, by definition, takes place in a low-traffic environment. All events offer participants a choice of rides, the Massif, for the more adventurous riders, and the Mini Massif perfect for riders looking for a new challenge, and the routes take riders to remote parts of the country and reward them with stunning scenery.
