RICHARDSONS RUMBLE COME AND TRY SPORTIVE.
Sunday 8th April 2018 - 103Mile | 67Mile | 38Mile
Start/Finish: St Ives, Cambridgeshire
This event is the season opener for many riders and gives everyone the opportunity to get that magic 100 in without the pressure of a Classic Sportive.
The route winds in way around four counties starting and finishing in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, on quiet roads without the mammoth climbs of other events.
However don’t be fooled as the distance and sometimes the wind will offer a good challenge for the 100milers. If you just easing into the season the 67 mile medium ride with be a good enough test for fresh legs.
Again this year we plan to add a 30+ mile route for real beginners and younger riders to try the world of sportives
