Event Overview

This is the second of our Mini Sportive rides from the Polocini Coffee Shop in Romiley, Cheshire. These events are limited to 100 riders and are designed to be the perfect balance between an Audax and a Sportive. These events will run on the first weekend of every month. 

The routes are no longer than 65 miles and the idea was to strip an event back to the absolute basics and make it about what is important. Riding your bike with like minded people on great routes. 

There is plenty of free parking near our shop and our super fast ‘Pro’ registration opens from 08:30 am with riders leaving anytime from 09:15. The idea is to turn up, grab a bite to eat and hit the road with no unnecessary queuing.

The entry fee is £15 or £12.50 for Polocini Test Team riders. 

Included in the entry fee:


Downloadable Route Card. 

Pre ride Porridge Pot and tea, coffee, or cold drink. 

Basic feed station offering water, fruit and flapjacks. 

Post ride BBQ (vegetarian option)  

We do not time have timing at our events although there will be a STRAVA page for those with gps devices and we have GPX files of the route available.

Info for Riders

The Macchiato is the second in our series of Mini Sportives. We only have one route of 55 miles with no shorter option. With the event being in August riders should be at peak fitness. No excuses!! The route heads out into the Peak District and is well balanced with some great climbs and descents. We design routes that flow and with limited numbers on the ride we can use much quieter smaller roads.
