Feedback from 2015:

"It was a very friendly day, from both riders and organisers.  Very good communication from the organisers."

"Riding through beautiful countryside with like minded souls and excellent flapjacks."

Whether you are a Wannabe Wiggo or more of a part time pedaller, whether you ride a  Pinarello or a vintage velo, Arts Alive, Flicks in the Sticks and cycling event company Rideventures have combined forces to create a day of cycling, fresh air and fun in the beautiful south Shropshire hills. This will be a friendly event with something for everyone.  We are the only West Midlands sportive to be recommended by the Breeze Network.
