Sportives run on food. Food makes the difference between completion and not completing and fast times and slow times. What's the point in trying to get your best sportive time if you can't keep your energy levels at their optimum through the ride. So this is where we major at Essex Sportives.
A lot of sportives just give you water and charge you for the rest. We do things differently. We cover your distance requirements together with the bursts of power you'll need to tackle the inclines we've added in. Our events are supported by High 5 products shown under test to provide higher octane bars and gels than their competitors. However, we don't stop there - we also provide you with volume food at our feedstops so you don't get starving hungry particularly towards the end of your ride. That would also affect your times.
And we haven't finished there. Once you're back with Essex Roads Sportives your event is not over. We feed you with hot cooked food and drinks. What a great opportunity to sit down and share your experience with others in a restaurant environment.
For the first time you can also buy our Essex Sportive (thirst recovery) Ale from our beer tent at the venue on your return.
So, as cyclists we think of you as cyclists and give you tremendous value for money too.
