Cycling_weekly report


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

We are again pleased to have the support of the Richardsons Cycles Group and with the start and finish outside their St Ives shop and the first feed at Stamford followed by the Corby shop for the second feed at 60 miles. Clifbar will again supply the energy products and drinks plus fruit, cake and savouries. The medium route will have its own stop at the village hall at Woodnewton at 38miles serving Clifbar nutrition drinks bars and Bloks with fruit and cake.


Tea and coffee will be available.
