The Wyre Forest Stinger Sportives are promoted by Wyre Forest Cycle Racing Club.

We've billed our event as a Family Sportive as we think Stourport-on-Severn is not just a great base for our event but has great attractions for families too. We will also be holding Go Race / Youth events on our track on the day

The event features 2 routes for riders to tackle. Stinger Jersey

The Mini-Stinger at 113km is not as hard as the full sportive in terms of distance but still represents a challenge to those that undertake it, and includes the notorious Stinger Section.

The Stinger is the full 169km route, so called because the early part of the ride is relatively flat but you can expect a real sting in the tail at the end of the ride. We have found you some of the best roads the Worcestershire countryside has to offer..
