Year End Sportive

Sun, 2017-11-26 11:42

Year End Sportive 

Your last ride this year!
A non-competitive cycle challenge - with 2 fully signposted courses

Sunday 31 December 2017
The Bike Shed, Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8LD *

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Year End Sportive.

While it is unlikely that there will still be snow on the route on the day, the snow in this area none the less has impacted on the event. The Route Check and Assessment, which encompasses all aspects of riders' Health and Safety, had to be cancelled due to the weather conditions. These conditions, and continuing snowfall, have also impacted on the process of signing the route .

Entry fees paid for this ride will be carried over to a future Sportive. The first of these will be at the end of March.
We also have an event in June, one in August and another in September.

Dare we say it, another Year End Sportive will be scheduled for next December - on the basis that we get lucky!


 Route Options:
30 miles [48km] - the Christmas Payback
- relatively flat and easy going for the casual rider

50 miles [80km] - the New Year Payforward
- a mixture of flat and rolling hills for intermediate riders

All our routes travel through some of the most beautiful Cotswold countryside.
Our routes avoid busy roads and use quiet lanes with very little traffic.
Additionally, our routes are scenic and a decent mix of hills and flat.
This is not just our opinion but the opinion of riders in our previous events.

Route Features: 
Fully signposted 
Feed stations 

Venue Facilities:
Pre-ride mechanical support | Toilets | FREE parking at Event Venue

For operational reasons the event is now going to start and finish at The Bike Shed, Tetbury.

The Cotswolds is well known for its beautiful countryside, gentle wolds, with river valleys, water meadows, beech woods and sleepy limestone villages. For this ride we have laid out 2 especially lovely routes. 

Our policy for routing your ride means that we positively avoid main roads where we can and identify quiet country lanes with spectacular views. We also prefer to vary our routes, so no two rides with us are the same!
