Those fancying the challenge of the Sodbury Sportive are being asked to sign up for this year’s competition.  Organisers say that interest is already at an all time high and are encouraging cyclists to enter early.
The tough cycling race takes place on Sunday August 16.  Starting and finishing in Chipping Sodbury, the event offers a choice of 3 distances, 100 miles, 60 miles or 30 miles.
The Saddleback Sodbury Sportive enjoyed its most successful year with a record number of 905 cyclists entering in 2014. Since its inception just three years ago the Sportive has become the most popular of its kind in the South West  
The route takes riders through some of the prettiest highways and byways of the region. With fast, flat sections combined with challenging steep climbs of the Cotswold ridge and superb views across the Severn valley, the Sportive is highly regarded by experienced and club riders alike.
Organised by the Members and Friends of the Rotary club of Chipping Sodbury, all profits from the event are given to charity, with the 2014 event raising £18,858.
