The Black Hole Sportive is a charity event raising money for Newbury RFC U16’s to coach rugby to children in Brasilian favelas in August 2015 and host a grass rugby festival for them in Rio de Janeiro .
Newbury Rugby Club is the perfect event centre with its fabulous facilities, parking , catering, clubhouse, changing rooms. It gives immediate rider access to our cyclists pitch ;the Up and Unders of the “Downlands Black Hole” , the lanes between Newbury – Hungerford – Andover that are quiet, beautiful and …. Hilly.
There is no finer area to road ride in the country as you charge down the hills and tackle the undulating climbs from Newbury, via Facoombe, Andover Rugby Club rest Halt and thence looping back for the Sting in the Tail ; an ascent, climb and descent of Walbury Hill, beside Coombe Gibbet.
It’s then an easy glide back to Newbury rugby club where the Brazilian BBQ awaits…
