Details

The Magnificent Seven is a unique cycling event. Not for the fainthearted, the race is a cross between a sportive and a hill climb, that invites participants to face seven of the city’s toughest hills.The route, which is nearly 27 miles, presents each rider with over 3,800ft of climbing, with inclines ranging from 9 to 23 per cent.

So how does it work? Cyclists ride with motorbike escorts and a lead car between each of the seven hills, where the riders then gather at the bottom of each climb before racing for points to the summit. The first 15 to the top then receive points which count towards the grand prize of being crowned King or Queen of the Mountains, for which the winners receive a trophy.

Both men and women are encouraged to ride with equal prize money for both categories, and, new for 2017, there’s also a prize for the over 40 year old riders, as the fastest veterans will be awarded points and battle for a separate prize list.

Each of the seven climbs will be subject to a full road closure managed by Sheffield City Council.
