From the start - on the southern edge of the village of Wool on the B3071 - up to the Burngate turn (above West Lulworth) is around 3 miles long and largely uphill all the way. It includes Newtown Hill, a little ring grovel for about 400 hundred yards. The hill peaks at Burngate Wood followed by a swift 1/2 mile descent to the Burngate turn onto the B3070. This is a sharp left turn and CANNOT be taken at speed. This is followed a fast sweeping descent past Lulworth Castle into East Lulworth where two S bends have to be taken with caution. The B3070 then heads north east along flattish roads past the military firing ranges, before turning west onto Holme Lane/Bindon Lane for 3 flat miles to Wool. This is not a B road, but is wide enough for passing cars. It is a winding road, ensure you ride with your 'head up' at all times, as several corners offer little advance visibility. The finish line will be on the edge of Wool village.
