  • andrew barratt

    Hi there,
    I was wondering if it maybe possible to advertise our club Sportive on the 8th Sept. The event is advertised on the British Cycling website, but we are looking for as much coverage as possible.

    Hill Billy 50 Mile Sportive Sunday, 8th September 2013

    This event will start at the
    Sandyford Community Fire Station –
    Marlborough Way, off Reginald Mitchell Way,
    Stoke-on-Trent
    ST6 5NZ

    08:30am start Facilities close at 17.00hrs

    Car parking and Toilets available

    Info for Riders:
    The route incorporates ‘Gun Hill’, part of the Tour of Britain, you will be grinding the crank arms up the Dumbers and the infamous Mow Cop Climb. Ever heard of Woodhouse Lane? A tough climb to the top of Biddulph Moor. The route has an overall climb of 5000ft with some beautiful views of the Staffordshire Moorlands. When you have clocked 25 miles you will have reached the half way fuelling point, where you can take aboard fuel bars and top your bottles up.

    Event website:http://www.kidsgrove-wheelers.co.uk/hillbilly.html

    British Cycling Website and online entry details at : https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/83665/50-Mile-Hill-Billy-Sportive
