The Farnborough Flyer Sportive

Post lockdown we’ll be seeing out the summer with our annual sportive,
from village to village, taking in some of the area’s finest lanes and
views. Whether you have just found a new passion for cycling
during lockdown or you are a serious athlete, we have an event
and a route for you.

There’s a choice of three scenic routes on quiet roads with three
different distances depending on the amount of climbing (and
descending) you want to take on. There’s plenty of support from
local businesses so expect a friendly club atmosphere, free
parking, decent food stops, and chip timing. Plus there’s plenty of
coffee, cake and pre-ride breakfast options to buy at the start/finish
courtesy of the Village Hotel.

We’re still looking to get the Farnborough Flyer up and running this
year on 6th September 2020. With the uncertainty over lockdown
still to be resolved, we - along with our partners - are ready to
mobilise at short notice and get another great edition organised for

The Farnborough Flyer is a not for profit event run by Rushmoor
Borough Council and Velo Club Meudon to raise money in support
of local young cyclists.
