Velo Sur Mer presents: The Purbeck Pub Run (England)

Velo Sur Mer: The Purbeck Pub Run info

At noon on June 28th, cyclists will gather for one of the most epic amateur cycling events in the South of England. Across the undulating hills of The Purbecks, riders will compete in a series of intense races between some of the many ancient pubs in the district. Winding their way along narrow lanes, pushing their bodies to the limit with some near five hundred foot climbs and reaching eye watering speeds of at least 35mph whilst bursting downhill, riders will compete for glory and greatness. 
Not only will the overall winner be crowned with the title of ‘The Purbeck Pub Run Champion’ but they shall receive the extremely sought after Chrome Coveted Jersey, provided by Chrome Industries and designed by Death Spray Custom. 



Other fantastic sponsors include Bournemouth’s own BigxTop, designers of our incredible trophy Boscombe Bike Club and Sweden’s finest in cycle accessory design Ass Savers. On top of all of this, there is further excitement to be revealed, none other than THE Jimmy from Jimmy’s Iced Coffee will be providing a mobile support team in his brand new truck, helping out with punctures, injuries and stocking riders up with iced coffee. 
There may be blood, there will be sweat, there may be tears, all over the course of the twenty mile route, competing for not only overall champion but also ‘Fastest Female Rider’ as well as ‘Fastest Fixed Rider’ who will both have their great achievements recognised. 
For those who do not wish to take part in this intense competition but wish to appreciate the beauty of The Purbeck District from the comfort of their bike and cheer their racing friends on at the finish line, there will be an shorter thirteen mile route planned.
