Open up your diaries, put the date in your calendars – it’s Sunday 17th September.

This is a day for riders of all abilities, a fun day of cycling, enjoying the beautiful countryside around Wickham Market.

The course selectors have developed a 25 mile circuit that all riders will follow. This is an ideal distance for beginners when riding at their own pace, At a steady speed it will take about 2 and a bit hours and with the odd stop maybe a bit longer.

Don’t worry about being last on the road, for those that have a little more experience there is the opportunity to take the circuit twice, the 50 miler – these riders are likely to be lapping in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Then for those that have been in the saddle quite a bit this year there is the 75 mile triple lap. There are two breeds of cyclist in this category the racing snakes who will not be stopping anywhere, and those that will plan a cup of tea and a cake along the way.

All are welcome to the first Wickham Market Sportive.

Get together with your friends and plan a little challenge. It is a fun day out, refreshments, marshalls, mechanical support, recovery vehicle we have it all covered for you.

All for just £5 per entry. More info and entry forms here.
