From Bath to Glastonbury and back again – cyclists of all abilities are being invited to gear up for the first-ever Team Bath Sportive, taking place on Sunday (April 22).
Starting and finishing at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, the Sportive – the cycling equivalent of running a marathon – will see cyclists head to Glastonbury and back via either 50km or 102km routes, both of which are fully signed and include feed stations.
It is a non-competitive event, with the focus being on participation in a supportive atmosphere, and is being run in conjunction with British Cycling. Advance entry is priced £20 for the 50km route and £30 for 102km, both increasing by £5 for entries on the day.
Organiser Felix Young said: “Sportives are a great way for people to get fit and challenge themselves, with the group nature of the event providing a fantastic opportunity for camaraderie and a chance to cycle between two iconic locations through the beautiful Somerset countryside.”
Medical and mechanical support will be provided on both routes and there is free parking at the STV for all taking part. Sports massage will also be available at the finish for donations to the Zambia IDEALS project involving University of Bath students.
Entrants must be aged 18 and over and more information is available by contacting organiser Felix Young on firstname.lastname@example.org. To enter online, visit www.teambath.com.
