The facilities we offer as part of your ride
We offer entrants to our sportives far more than others do, and all within the price you pay. There are no hidden extras on our sportives, just the booking price you pay. Where commercial organisations run sportives they rely heaviliy on advertising and pushing things on riders that they don't need to cycle home with. Here's our list:-

Route Signage and rider safety - important note
Please note that all physical signage and gpx/tcx files provide to you are 'suggested cycling routes' for the event for which they are provided. Although great care is taken to use roads which are suitable their condition - on the day of any event their physical condition or safety cannot be vouched for. As a participant you must follow the rules of the Highway Code which naturally takes absolute legislative precedence over any suggested sportive route given. With regard to the influence of any weather or its on-road results which might influence rider safety it is for each rider to determine within the relms of the highway code and their own personal common-law responsibilities and abilities whether they should ride. However, the organisers reserve the right to cancel any sportive ride before it occurs should they believe it not in the Clubs' interest to hold the event. This can be for reasons of participant safety.
With regard to road signage, this is checked on the morniing of any sportive ride, however, the Club cannot guarrantee that this will remain in place, nor that it remains uninterfered with (as experience has shown). All participants are therefore recommended to download the appropriate gpx/tcx route before hand and to rely on this in preference to physical signage.
