New for 2013 is the National Forest and Beyond sportive.

Based at the newly built Pirelli Stadium, home of Burton Albion FC, the routes take in the quiet lanes of the west side of the National Forest and beyond to east Staffordshire.

Choose from 94, 76 and 58 mile routes, with over 5000ft of climbing on the long route.

The routes are varied over rolling terrain, with a couple of sharp 13% climbs thrown in make sure you know where your gears are. View the routes below.

The long route has two feedstations, at 30 and 74 miles, the other routes have one.

Riders will receive the usual sports gels and bars at the start, the feedstations will be stocked with water, sports drink and a variety of sweet and savoury food.
