Ride Cotswolds Sportive Saturday 30th May 2020

Ride Cotswolds Sportive

Event Venue: The Fire Service College, London Road, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, GL56 0RH

At the start of summer, the Cotswolds will be at their immaculate best and what better way to enjoy them than by bike as you navigate the intertwining lanes and tackle the rolling hills. With all three routes barely leaving the confines of this area of natural beauty the Cotswolds Sportive showcases the region like never before.

Constantly undulating from start to finish the rapid succession of climbs and descents will keep you on your toes all day, and although those in the first half of the ride are relatively tame, those in the later stages pack a significantly bigger punch. Rising up the ridge from Broadway, Snowshill Road is the big wake up call after the gentle start and will have you climbing for over eight kilometres before you reach the summit.

As the epic route heads south, the ups become bigger and so do the downs. You'll head to Bourton Hill before looping back via Clapton-on-the-hill and the last big test of the day, Rissington Road. Climbing up and through the pretty village of Rissington, winding between its pristine stone cottages and manicured gardens this is the quintessential Cotswolds climb, and at 2.3 kilometres long with an average of 5% a pretty tough one to round of a wonderful day.

The Cotswolds Sportive is one of our best selling cycling events, so grab your friends, partners or colleagues and bring them along for an unforgettable day in the saddle. 

Featured climb: Snowshill Road

Leaving Broadway and heading due south, Snowshill Road climbs almost continually for just over eight kilometres. The first three are set on a 5% average but are much steeper into and through the village of Snowshill, then upon leaving the slope begins to undulate somewhat as it closes in on the trig point on top of Cutsdean Hill.
