Cotswold Spring Classic sportive
- Easter Monday, 13th April 2020


2020 EVENT CANCELLED

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in the UK and around the globe, we've taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the Cotswold Spring Classic Sportive. All entrants to this years event will be automatically transferred to the 2021 edition which will take place on Monday 5th April 2021. An email with further information has been sent out to all registered participants.

The entry system has now been suspended and will re-open again once we are set for the 2021 edition

 

ENTRY NOW OPEN...

The Cotswold Spring Classic returns for it's 11th anniversary in 2020, bigger and better than ever.

Costing just £32.00 to enter, the sportive offers three route options (160km, 100km and 55km) through some of the best countryside the Cotswolds have to offer, meaning there's something for everyone. The 55km route gives riders new to the sport, or getting back on the bike after the long winter, the perfect first ride back. And if you're planning on riding either the 100km or 160km events you won't need to decide on the route you're taking until you get to the split point on the day.

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), motorcycle outrider support, medical cover from the Wilts Ambulance Service and mechanical support from Performance Cycles (at the start, each feed station and also in a support car out on the road).

Once back from the ride, riders can expect a finishers medal, a goodie bag (complete with the all-important Easter Egg!!), hot food and showers / changing facilities. Add to this the ample free parking, electronic timing and sign-on goodies, and at just £29.50 per rider it stacks up to a great value day in the saddle!!

The Cotswold Spring Classic has sold out every year for the last nine years, even with a massive 25% increase in capacity in 2016 to 1,000 riders. For 2020 we're sticking to a maximum of 1,000 riders. So don't delay, get your entry in now.

If you've not ridden one of our events before, below are just a handful of comments we've had from riders over the last couple of years, and a pretty cool video put together by one rider that really captures what our events are all about...

Perfect spring sportive. I have nothing negative to say. Thanks! (James)

The whole event was a joy with proper timing chips, great road signage (the best I've ever had on a sportive), great enthusiam from all those involved in organising the event (the start / finish line team, those at signing on etc.) and a great route (Michael)

Brilliantly organised, great food stop and well marked. (Heather)

Just got home from the ride today. Only my second sportive.. Knocked spots off the first one for organisation and route markings (Paul)

Just like to thank you for an excellent event, well done, as long as it keeps going we'll keep coming. (Tom)

Great organisation and friendly and helpful people everywhere. (Michael C)

It was a great day........fantastically organised!!! Well done. (Dominic K)

I've ridden a dozen or so Sportive's over the last couple of years, and this was definitely the best value and best organised yet. A big thank you to you and the rest of your team for organizing it. Looking forward to the Autumn classic now. (John)

Superb organisation and just brilliantly run. (Loz)

This was a fantastic day - route challenging, well marked and fun. The atmosphere in the feed stations was brilliant and provided a much needed boost, especially on the long route before the fun really kicks in. Pasta at finish much appreciated. I wish all events had this atmosphere. (David)

I'll definitely enrol on any of your events as I think they are the best out there, right down to the pasta!! (Tom)
