We are delighted to be working once again with Racing Welfare. Having delivered their very successful inaugural bike ride in August 2021, this time we’re staying in one location for a true test of endurance – a 24hr team sportive.

The event will be based out of Cheltenham Racecourse over the weekend of 16th – 17th July. Teams of 4 will ride around a 30km looped circuit, visiting the beautiful Cotswolds, tackling some challenging climbs with outstanding views!

Unfortunately, as this is a team event, solo riders are not permitted, but please don’t let that deter you from entering. If you cannot make up a team yourself, we will allocate a team to you on receipt of your registration.

Testimonial from a Previous Rider

“I’ve ridden many time on pie events over the years, and I can say without fear of contradiction they are superb. And that word applies to all the essential components of a great trip – the organisation, accommodation, food, guiding, support, location and routing. Oh – I left out the craic and camaraderie as well!”
