On the Day

Cyclists arrive at the start location to register and collect their timing chips. They will then be invited to listen to a start-line safety briefing, before being set off in waves.

Multiple route options will be provided, meaning the ride remains accessible to a wide range of cycling abilities. Bridleways are used as much as possible, ensuring minimal contact with  vehicular traffic and maximising cyclists’ enjoyment!

Our support crew will be on hand to attend to any mechanical / medical issues and of course there will be plenty of refreshment stops for the cyclists to look forward to!

Individual’s times will be available on-line after the ride, so they can see if they managed to achieve their target.

Cycle chaperones can also be supplied to provide that extra level of support along the route, particularly for less experienced cyclists.

Sportives are a great way for everybody to get involved, even if you have supporters that aren’t so keen on getting on a bike. There are always opportunities for volunteers to help out during the day, whether that be taking signage down, serving cups or tea or handing out medals!
