Force Autumn Storm Sportive
22nd September 2015
The Force Autumn Storm will be back on Sunday 4th October. Run by The Bike Shed in conjunction with Force Cancer Charity.
Fingle Glen Golf Hotel, Tedburn St Mary, EX6 6AF.
This stunning ride will take you west from Fingle Glen; over to Yeoford, Copplestone, up to Winkleigh, across to Broadwoodkelly, through Monkokehampton and Hatherleigh, along beautiful cycle routes with amazing views before you come back to your start point. The route is just under 60 miles in length and there are no shortcuts!!!
Riders will start rolling out at 8:00am, but there will be a lot of you, so this will take around 30 minutes to get everyone on their way. Hot drinks will be available at the start / finish point, with two light feed stations along the route.
Entry is £15 per person. No sponsorship necessary but donations very welcome, both on the day and via the Force Donations Page. This ride will be capped at 800 cyclists.
You will of course need a bike, and the best type of bike for this event would be a road bike, however a hybrid bike or a touring bike would also be suitable. You will also need a helmet, and suitable cycle clothing. As the event is in October, you may want to prepare for the worst of Britain's weather, so some good waterproof gloves, a rain jacket, and perhaps waterproof cycling tights.
The Bike Shed are proud to support local cyclists, local cycling and your local cancer charity.
