One of the UK’s favorite sportive events – the Blenheim Palace Sportive – will return to the cycling calendar in 2014. The event, which rolls out from one of the UK’s most iconic stately homes, takes in stunning Cotswold countryside over a 60 or 100 mile route on Sunday 17 August.
Riders on either of the two routes will enjoy a series of rolling climbs and although challenging they will suit a wide range of cyclists. Full course details can be found at www.blenheimsportive.com and the event is under new management, with a number of improvements made to ensure an excellent experience for every rider.
There is also a family 10km loop in the grounds of Blenheim Palace. Entry £35 or £100 VIP entry. Early bird special entry of just £30 or £90, but register quickly www.blenheimsportive.com
