Cotswold Autumn Classic Sportive,
supporting Against Breast Cancer -
Sunday 1st October 2017

After a tough day in the saddle, the Spring & Autumn Classic's are over for another year, well done to all those that took part - and a HUGE thank you to all of you that have raised thousands of pounds for our charity partner Against Breast Cancer.

If you want to know how you got on, all riders times are listed under the 'Rider Times' tab above - along with breakdown's of the various timed climb sections. You can also download your pictures from the event now by going to the SPORTIVE PHOTO website, and putting your rider number into the search box.


The Cotswold Autumn Classic is back for 2017, and bigger than ever. Continuing the partnership with Against Breast Cancer, the event takes place on Sunday 1st October and over the last few years has proved a popular season closer for many. The event offers riders the choice of 55km, 100km, or 160km (100 mile) routes through some of the best countryside the Cotswolds has to offer - and you won't need to decide on the route you're taking until you get to the split point on the day. Using the same great venue as it's sister event (the Spring Classic) but a completely different route, the Cotswold Autumn Classic makes for a great day out on the bike.

For 2017 we've partnered with the team at Against Breast Cancer to raise money to help with their vital research into the causes of secondary spread - as an end of season event, it's a great way to push yourself that little bit further than you maybe would, and raise money whilst riding your bike.

Each route will be comprehensively signed, with well stocked feed stations out on the route (one for the 55km and 100km routes, and two for the 160km route) and motorcycle outrider support and Medical Cover (supplied by Wiltshire Ambulance Service). Mechanical support will be provided on the day by Performance Cycles, at the start, each feed station and also in a support car out on the road.

Entry for the Cotswold Autumn Classic, supporting Against Breast Cancer is now open and costs just £28.00 per person - so don't delay, ENTER NOW.

If you've not ridded the Autumn Classic before, here's some of the feedback we've had from riders over the last couple of years....

Just wanted to say what a great event Sunday was! Excellent route, very well sign posted and a great selection of food at the half way point. Will definitely be back next year if you run it again (and will encourage others) Paul E.

This is the second year I’ve participated. Very well organised and nice route. This is turning into one of my favourites so thank you very much. Nick B

Great event and fantastic organisation. Thanks again; see you next year. Mike

I wanted to say how comforting it was to have the motorcycle support patrolling the route. It was definitely a big plus for me, and something that I've just not seen done so well on other sportives- so a big thumbs up for that! Gary
