    There is a great bike event on 23rd September starting from Purbeck School Wareham Dorset. The bike event is in aid of Cancer Research UK. There are three routes to select from 10, 20 and 50 miles all through Dorset’s wonderful countryside. For more details see http://www.warehamrotary.co.uk/bikeride

  • abi anderson

    Greg
    this is the way to go! There’s probably something near you, and I like the idea of support teams.

    check out the GWR that runs through Chew on 15th July – would have been perfect, maybe next year?

    Abs xx

  • Ron Graves

    Your geographical classification is wide of the mark in many cases. You have Ullapool in Wales, Wrexham in Central England not Wales, Poynton (Northwest Winter Series & Jodrell Bank), Woodford, Crewe and Chapel-en-le-Frith in Central instead of North West, but Chester and Poynton (Polkadot Challenge) correctly in the North West and Oldham in the North East instead of North West. You have even put Oxfordshire in the North East! All that and I have not checked all of them.

    Is this listing just BC events or any sportives? Also can it be made available in spreadsheet form?

  • Paul Carvill

    Please cad you add the PAUL KIRK NORTH LINCS CYCLOSPORTIVE in memory of Paul KIRK.

    It’s on the 15th April 2012 and is in aid of the Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

    It’s registered through the BCF.

    Great website, very informative for all cyclists wanting to know of rides available.

  • neil delafield

    could we have details of the following sportive added to your calender. i can send pics/logos if needed. also any chance of a small news story. we are also offering a free 2 day trip to mid wales to exxperience our events for 2012. a visit in february or early march – free accomomodation, food, couple of days of decent riding.

    THE MID WALES CHALLENGE March 31st-1st April 2012

    Set in the heart of Wales in the Cambrian Mountains, Llanwrtyd Wells provides access to one of the few remaining wilderness areas in Britain and in the spring of 2012 will host The Mid Wales Challenge, a 2 day event offering challenging way-marked road sportives. However, you may enter both or just 1 day. See the website for online entry.

    Llanwrtyd Wells has hosted many cycling events including the 2009 Merida, and the 2011 Trans Wales visited the town. The 2010 Tour of Britain was routed through the town.

    The event makes a welcome return to Llanwrtyd Wells, it is being organised by local cyclists who have excellent knowledge of the local roads, and will therefore be taking in the highlights of the area. The routes will take the cyclist through some of the most beautiful scenery in Mid Wales with energetic climbs, exhilarating descents. Profiles and maps will be available on the website by the end of January 2012.

    The organisers are working closely with the community to make this event into a festival, with good riding during the day and the local restaurants and pubs offering good value menus for cyclists and non cyclists alike.

    For further information go to http://www.redkite-events_pg_Inspire.co.uk.
