We've put together our series of five 'mini-sportives' to take us through the winter - with one event a month taking place in November, December, January, February and March.
The format is designed to be simple, and cheap!! There will be no feed stations or goody bags, and the routes won't be the gut busting ones like you'd expect in the height of summer - but other than that, they'll be everything else you would expect from a sportive. With our fully signed routes, mechanical back-up, event photography, rider public liability insurance, free tea, coffee, hot-chocolate and our famous homemade cakes at the finish.
Ride distances will be 25 or 50 miles and they are the ideal way to make sure you continue to get those good rides in at least once a month. The events will be very relaxed, starting at 08:30 (with registration from 08:00) with the aim of getting you all back by just after lunch / early afternoon. The perfect way to clock up those much needed winter miles.
There is limited parking at Hellesdon Parish Hall (approx. 15 cars max first come first serve) – so we have sourced the use of Norwich Airport Park & Ride - completely free of charge. This has ample parking spaces – and is less than a mile down the road from the hall – an ideal warm up distance! The car park will be open from 07:00.
