Still time to enter Great Western Sportive, June 17th
There is still time to enter the Great Western Sportive this Sunday, June 17th. The event boasts a 100 mile top end, on a flowing course that ranks amongst the best in the country!
The epic Great Western starts from the Nationwide Building Society HQ and quickly delivers you into the beautiful, rolling Marlborough Downs for a full day of varied riding on some of the south's quietest and most bike friendly roads. Climbs are well catered for with stiff tests over the Ridgeway and an accumulation of downland ascents totalling over 2000 meters of vertical for the day, but the cleverly designed course rewards every tough climb with a long, sweeping descent, making for a challenging course that is actually a joy to ride! 83 and 49 mile shorter distances compliment the main event, giving something for everyone.
The route is fully signed, with motorbike marshals and vehicle support keep you on track, plus three feed and support stations to sustain you.
This year's event t shirt design has now been revealed. It's a bold traditional celtic Great Western design on a high quality bright white shirt; perfect for the pub! Timing is taken care of using reliable bike mounted RFID chips, and at the finish you'll get free tea and cake!
