P451/18c - 18 Miles Hilly

Meeting point: Adjacent to the bus shelter on the Old Sherborne Road, opposite Broken Cross. This is approximately 200m South of our old meeting place and affords plenty of room on the grass verge.

Course description: START on unclassified road from Dorchester to Middlemarsh (known as the Old Sherborne Road) at the forward end of a small lay-by 0.5 miles north of the boundary of Charminster. Proceed north to Middlemarsh to turn left at small road by GIVE WAY 75yds sign, before the junction with the A352.
Turn left again after 40 yards with care to join A352 southbound.
Continue through Lyons Gate, Minterne Magna, Cerne Abbas and Godmanstone to
FINISH At the fire hydrant marker, 230 yards beyond the Charminster sign and 30yds before the bus shelter.

Course notes: The climb to the 'top' of the course is long and undulating. The descent to Middlemarsh is fast, with riders sometimes travelling in excess of 50mph. Safety on the descent must be the paramount concern of all riders.

After the turn, the climb to Lyons Gate is always hard (make sure you save something for it on the way out), and the undulating descent down the valley to the finish is fast, but has some short sharp climbs to contend with.
