Exciting ride promised at Sodbury Sportive
The Saddleback Sodbury Sportive is due to tackle the Cotswold Edge when it gets underway on 5 August.
Organisers say those taking part can expect an exciting and varied ride, with the event starting and finishing in Chipping Sodbury.
The route, which takes riders through some of the prettiest highways and byways of the region could prove challenging for some with the steep climbs of the Cotswold Edge a feature of the event.
The Sportive offers cyclists of all abilities the chance to choose between three distances - 30 miles, 60 and 100 miles, along well-signed and marshalled routes with mechanical back up and a broom wagon if they struggle to finish.
Organisers say that the aim of the Sportive, which is run by volunteers, is to provide an experience that is equal to the best sportives in the UK. All profits from the event go to charity, with last year’s event raising £27,406 for various good causes.
Participants have feed stations along the route offering homemade food and treats, and there is free hot food back in Chipping Sodbury with massages on offer.
