Info for Riders

We are so very sorry to have to bring you bad news if you were thinking of doing this ride.
Huge regrets but we have to cancel the ride due to matters beyond our control.
We have been forced to make this decision as an absolute last resort.

There is a busy ride programme later in the year, to include our popular Cotswold Sportive at Westonbirt School.

 

A non-competitive cycle challenge with 3 fully signposted courses of 70 miles, 50 miles and 30 miles.

FAMILY RATE
Children under 16 can ride in this Event for just £10 each!
This rate applies to 1 or 2 children per family 
Each child must be riding with 1 or 2 parents [or adults at the same address]
Parents must pre-register themselves online
Children are registered on the day of the Event and paid for in cash
Please notify us before the Event of the children's names.

The Cotswolds is well known for its beautiful countryside, gentle wolds, with river valleys, water meadows, beech woods and sleepy limestone villages. A mix of flatlands, rolling hills and sharp escarpments makes this area very special for bike rides such as the COTSWOLD SPRING  SPORTIVE. For this ride we have laid out 3 especially lovely routes.

Our policy for routing means we avoid main roads where we can and identify quiet country lanes with spectacular views. We also vary our routes; no 2 rides are the same!

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The deadline for online entries is midnight on Sat 24 Mar.
  • After the online registration deadline, entry is at the event only.  
  • We can only guarantee hot food after the Sportive for riders who register by noon on Thur 22 Mar. 
  • Payment for entry on the day will only be accepted in cash.
  • A minimum of £1 per rider will be donated to the Bikes4Africa programme to enable children in rural Africa to get to school far more easily, quickly and safely - by bike.
  • If the organisers need to cancel the event due to weather, safety concerns or any other reason, your entry fee will be carried over to a future event of your choice.
