Cotswold Spring Classic Sportive

The Cotswold Spring Classic is a fully supported event in the tradition of the best European cyclosportive's and Gran Fondo's.

This means that the route will be clearly and comprehensively marked, with direction arrows at each turning and road junction. We will make sure that you are in no doubt as to where you should be heading, so if there is a long time between turnings, we'll put up some straight-on signs to give you some reassurance that you haven't missed a turn. However, in the unlikely event that you take a wrong turn at any point or that signs have been dislodged / removed, we will give each rider a route card as a fall-back, which will also include emergency contact information.

There will be well-stocked feeding stations out on the route (one for the short and mid routes, two for the long route), which will have a variety of food, such as fruit, cakes, and sandwiches, as well as basic 1st aid kits and spares/tools.

We will be operating broom wagons to pick up or assist anyone that runs into real difficulties during their ride, together with mobile medics from GWAS Ambulance and motorcycle marshall outriders who are accredited motorcyclists trained to assist with the safety of events held on the public highway.

There will be a mobile bike shop from Performance Cycles at the event centre, where a mechanic will be on hand to help you out if you have any concerns about your bike before you set out. However, please note that you should not leave it till the morning of the event to sort out any problems with your bike – as this may result in a delay to you starting, or you missing the event completely!! They will also have spares and accessories, clothing and sports nutrition for sale.

We are pleased to be able to confirm that top cycling photographer Phil O'Connor will be the official photographer at the Cotswold Spring Classic, and will be out on the course photographing every rider. To help identify you, riders will be given a laminated bike number (to be fixed to handlebars) as part of their signing on pack on the morning of the event.
