AN annual cycling event organised by Chipping Sodbury Rotary Club has been recognised as one of the best 16 rides in Britain by Cycling Weekly magazine.
The Saddleback Sodbury Sportive involved a record 960 cyclists last year, an increase of ten per cent, and raised more than £20,000 for charity.
Organiser and club member Bill Bennett said: “There are hundreds of sportives each year and to be featured by such a high profile cycling magazine is just reward for the immense efforts made by the organising team.”
Entries for 2016 are already up on the same time last year. The event takes place on Sunday, August 21, and entry forms are available online at http://www.sodburysportive.co.uk
