Event Summary

Event Overview

A group of cyclists from the Bath area have attended countless sportives and étapes over the years and decided to take the ‘best bits’ from each one and incorporate them all into their own event, ‘The Rugby Sportive’ starting and finishing at Corsham Rugby Club, Wiltshire.

Three stunning routes, (circa 86 - 61 - 25 miles) along scenic country lanes and through ‘chocolate box’ villages should cater for riders of all abilities. All riders will have chip timing so if you return on another occasion, you’ll be able to see how much you’ve improved...or not!

The courses will pass a number of rugby clubs. Selected clubs will be offering their facilities for the pitstops which will provide both sweet and savory offerings, together with plenty of hydration. Incidentally, you’ll pass several pubs along the way, it’s entirely up to you if you want to add your own pitstop!

The event has been organized and will be run entirely by volunteers with all proceeds from the event going to Bath Rugby Foundation https://www.bathrugbyfoundation.com/ a wonderful charity supporting vulnerable young children in the region. Whilst we’d be delighted if you chose to support the charity you are free to just ride for fun or even support your own charity.

If you would like to bring family members there’s going to be all types of entertainment and refreshments on offer all day at Corsham Rugby Club, from face painting, fairground games, bouncy castles, indoor and outdoor bars, live music. Full details will be available in due course. We understand many of you will have to travel home after the sportive but please try to stay for an hour or so to unwind, listen to some music and enjoy a celebratory drink.

It might be our first sportive but we’re determined to do everything we can to make it the best and most enjoyable sportive you participate in during 2020. Come and see what we have to offer and join in the fun.
