Our feed stops are carefully considered offering the right type of food for the different distances. We know because we ride the routes.

SPORTIVE 2014 News

It was an honour for me to present 10 year old Noah with his well earned trophy for completing the 47 mile sportive route. It is very hilly but Noah looked quite fresh, more than can be said for his dad Stephen;-)

We have been invited by British Cycling to write a monthly blog on all the planning and promotion that takes place to get the Sportive up and running each year. Read them here!

Improvements for 2014

We are always looking for ways to improve the Sportive based on rider and volunteer feedback, and as the event grows we are investing in bigger and better resources to make each successive event better than the last. This year we will be improving the registration process and adding more car parking, as well as some changes to the routes to improve the food stop facilities.

We are also adding a new food stop at the cafe in Flash (Flash Bar Stores), which will be a welcome break for the long route riders. Here as well there will be toilets and access to hot or cold food from the cafe itself, as well as the free food on offer from our own stand.

Event Photography

New for 2014 was event photography provided by www.sportsunday.co.uk all riders can now buy a souvenir of their day for a few pounds.
