Event Postponed - Until May 2021

Following the latest statement made by British Cycling Federation on 17th July 2020 that the return of sportives will be reviewed in August and it is not possible to resume them safely under the current guidelines, we have decided to postpone this event until May 2021. We are not affiliated with BCF but as the sports governing body we cannot ignore their recommendation. We must think of the wider community, the safety of riders and safety of our staff.  We really want everyone to enjoy our events to the fullest and not be restricted and have a lesser experience.

Spring Classic Sportive

The Spring Classic - the perfect way to get some miles into the legs and a chance to test out your early season fitness. This event has sold out in the previous THREE years so please don't leave it too late to book up. We are limited to 700 riders. The 25  mile routes are designed as a figure of 8. Loops of 25 miles in two directions using the Start / Finish as the Feed-Zone. On the day you can choose from either 25 / 50 / 75 or 100 miles. For 2020 we have designed a new route which we believe is even better! The routes has been chosen to be free flowing and take in some beautiful countryside around the village of Swanton Morley. There is even a surprise on the 2nd loop with 2 miles to go....... If 25 miles is too far we have our shorter 8-10 mile route. This has been designed to be family friendly with low traffic.

What You Get:

Full route signing, finishers medal, feed-zone with water, energy drink, bananas, sweets, biscuits and crisps. Mechanical support.

Optional extras:

* Car-parking at the event centre will cost £2.00 per car on the gate.      
* Tea and Fresh Coffees,
