The Shropshire Devil is an ideal start to the sportive calendar. The 2019 event starts and ends in Pontesbury, a stone’s throw from Shrewsbury and within easy reach of the Midlands, North Wales and Cheshire. We have two routes to choose from – 53 or 88 miles – both of which showcase the best of the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Borders. The area is superb for cycling, with quiet roads and stunning views. Be warned, though, there are some hills and there’s a sting in the tail for long route riders in the form of The Burway, a brutal climb from Church Stretton up onto the Long Mynd. The views – not to mention the cakes at the feedstations – make it all worthwhile!
