Cornwall Coastal Classic
Event 20-26 October 2013


British Cycling members and all members of UK cycling clubs can now enter the Cornwall Coastal Classic for just £260.

The seven stage event from 20-26 October run by Carrick Leisure, offers the rider a very special experience - this is as close as it gets to experiencing what the pros go through when competing in a major tour. 

The route follows the coast of Cornwall, and the Devon and Cornwall border, passing through iconic locations such as Rock, Polzeath and Milook along the dramatic north Cornwall coastline, down through the southern fishing villages and towns of Looe, Mevagissey, and Polperro, around the craggy Roseland Peninsula to Truro, Helford and The Lizard, and way out west to Penzance, St Ives and Hayle. This is a chance to not only be part of a significant mark in UK sportive history, but to also experience riding the breathtaking Cornish coastline and countryside.

The route:

Stage One      Lakeview, Lanivet (event HQ) to Bude

Stage Two      Bude to Saltash

Stage Three    Saltash to Bodmin

Stage Four     Bodmin to Truro

Stage Five     Truro to Helston

Stage Six      Helston to St Ives

Stage Seven   St Ives to Lakeview, Lanivet

All riders will be supported by the experienced Carrick Leisure Event Team who will be staying at the event HQ to ensure all needs are met. There will also be a significant event crew supporting riders on route that will include a mobile feed station offering nutrition drinks and energy food, mobile support mechanics, National Escort safety motorbike marshals and emergency pick up vehicles as required.

There will also be support escort cyclists who will stay with pre-determined groups to ensure that riders are safe and will also keep to an agreed pace. Mobile bike mechanics will be on hand to tend to any bike problems and spare bikes will also be available during each stage for those mechanical problems that cannot be fixed by the roadside. 

Don’t miss out on being part of this land mark event – enter online via the British Cycling website here.  British Cycling members will be asked to enter a valid membership number and club members, their registered club name, in order to qualify for the discounted rate of £260.  For special group rates please contact Geoff Samuels on 01208 262838 or email geoffrey.samuels@cornwall.gov.uk
