Preview: Great Western Sportive
Event: 19th June
Promoted by: Southern Sportive
Still time to enter 100+ mile epic!
The Great Western Sportive is coming up on Sunday 19th June and there are still some spaces left on the event.
Supported by Wilier Bikes, the 105 mile Great Western starts from the Nationwide Building Society HQ and quickly delivers you into the beautiful, Rolling Wiltshire Downs for a full day of varied riding on some of the south's quietest and most bike friendly roads. Climbs are well catered for with stiff tests over the Ridgeway and an accumulation of downland ascents totalling over 2000 meters of vertical for the day, but the cleverly designed course rewards every tough climb with a long, sweeping descent, making for a challenging course that is actually a joy to ride!
83 and 49 mile shorter distances compliment the main event, giving something for everyone. The route is fully signed, with motorbike marshals and vehicle support keep you on track, plus three feed and support stations to sustain you.
Timing is taken care of using reliable bike mounted RFID chips, and at the finish you'll get free tea and cake ant the smartest event t-shirt of the season!
