The HHH offered the challenging SUPERMAX route (as close to 100 MILES as we could make it) and a shorter version, the still-testing 2/3rds MIDI (approximately 66 MILES). The well signed and carefully planned course sought out roads with minimal traffic, and took riders through varied and often beautiful countryside including downland, woodland and picturesque Hampshire villages.

 

As you'd expect from its name, there were plenty of HILLS in the HHH but no ridiculous "cliff face" climbs - though you certainly needed your lowest gear. With more total metres of ascent than most UK sportives, the HHH was not to be underestimated. If you hadn't ridden enough miles through the early spring, it would find you out! With the hills well spaced out, there were sections where the "rouleurs" would get onto the big ring.

 

We start and finish at Sparsholt College, near Winchester, Its excellent facilities include on-site parking close to Registration, also a cafe. We provide Third Party event insurance, paramedic responders, full route signage, printed route directions, feed stations, and all the usual sportive support.

The organisers of the HHH have decided to retire from event organisation. We shall greatly miss the sportive scene which we have been a part of since the early days. Our very best wishes go to everyone who has ridden and supported the HHH.
