KEY INFO - EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL 2022
Postponed until 2022
Corsham Rugby Club
It is with regret and huge disappointment that we are having to postpone the Wiltshire Sportive to 2022.
Despite a great deal of work by everyone involved, the challenges posed by the uncertainties around Covid-19 has meant that we will be unable to stage a quality event, and the sensible option is to postpone to 2022.
We are grateful for the hard work behind the scenes of our team and of course we will be refunding the full entry fee to all those who have registered so far. This money should hit your bank accounts over the next 7 days.
When registering you will be directed to the British Cycling portal, if you’re not a member you will need to register with British Cycling, its free and you can opt not to receive marketing emails.
A group of like-minded cyclists who have participated in countless sportive / etape events over several years decided to get together and take all the ‘best bits’ from each one and incorporate them all into their own event.
‘The Rugby Sportive’ has been created to give riders three great routes to choose from, a family fun day with numerous attractions & competitions together with live music from a variety of musical artists.
Everyone is working on a voluntary basis with all money raised being donated to Bath Rugby Foundation, a remarkable charity helping vulnerable young people in the region.
Whilst we’d be delighted if you chose to support the charity you are free to just ride for fun or support your own charity.
Pitstops will provide both sweet and savory offerings, together with plenty of hot and cold drinks. Incidentally, you’ll pass several pubs along the way, it’s entirely up to you if you want to add your own pitstop!
To encourage non-cycling family members to join you, we’ve organised all types of entertainment and refreshments at Corsham Rugby Club. From face painting, bouncy castles, indoor and outdoor bars, BBQ’s afternoon tea, live music and a mini rural Olympics to name but a few! (Full details will be available in due course). We understand you have to travel home after the sportive but rather than just load your bike and go…we encourage you to stay for an hour or so to unwind, listen to some music & enjoy the atmosphere with a celebratory drink in your hand.
It might be our first sportive, but we’re determined to do everything we can to make it the best and most enjoyable sportive you participate in during 2022.
