One of the villages you will ride through at Tour of Cotswold sportive

With entries filling fast, the Tour of Cotswolds sportive on July 20 offers participants the opportunity to take in the very best of England and Wales’ largest area of outstanding natural beauty.

A reviewer from a renowned sportive forum said “if you're looking for a ride which takes you to some less explored parts of the Cotswolds, this is definitely your ticket. The organisation was good and drama free; the feed station was well stocked and hassle free. I'd absolutely recommend this ride; I liked the challenge, the scenery (including the postcard villages) and the off the beaten track route."

Starting from Shipston on Stour both the 76 mile Epic and 52 mile Challenge routes flow from beautiful Cotswold village on quiet lanes through glorious countryside to the next picturesque village with a few notable climbs on the route via an exceptionally well signed route.

With loads of parking, changing and catering Shipston on Stour Rugby Club is the perfect HQ. Our event partners Total Fitness Bath will be offering a free gear and brake check prior to the start and then an on course mechanic and broom wagon should it be required.

MediBike are providing the medical cover and massage therapy will be available on your return to the HQ for tired legs at a small cost. On return to base grab a cold drink from the bar and relax watching the Tour stage and reliving your great day out on the bike with fellow riders.

All riders will also be able to pick up a free copy of the new magazine Sportif.

Entries are now coming in thick and fast so please don't delay in entering.
