Clare (on right, above) says: “I took part in this event in 2014. I’d wholeheartedly recommend it. The sportive was well organised and fun with a well signed route and great stops with friendly faces.”

Course
The courses for both dates are the same as 2014. 
So rolling hills, green meadows, quiet hamlets, great road surfaces on the majority of the roads, feed-stations and the odd challenging climb....

Links to routes will follow.

Electronic chip card timing.
First aid
First Aid will be patrolling the course in their response vehicle. The number of the event director will be at registration. Be sure to save it to your phone and make sure you take your phone with you! If in the unlikely event you are involved in an accident, dial 999 if you can. There will also be first aid kits at the feed stations.
Toilets
Toilet facilities will be available at the start, at each feed station and at the finish. If you do need to go in between feed-stations, please find a discreet spot - i.e. behind a tree, in the bushes, out of sight and away from local resident's driveways, hedges etc.
