New Sportive Hits The UK

News in today that bike manufacturer Wilier has teamed up with new sportive event company Uk Cycling Events to sponsor a range of sportives hitting the lanes from October 2009 into 2010.

UK Cycling Events are looking at catering for both the road and MTB market, much like Evans Cycles do with their Ride It sportives.

Unfortunately the majority will be kicking off down South. The first events will be the Wilier New Forest Sportive and the Wilier South Downs Sportive on the 11th and 18th October respectively.

There will be a choice of 3 routes, 100 mile, 70 mile and 40 mile, which are 10 miles more than the standard which will be a bit more testing for the beginner, amateur and experienced bracket riders.

Event facilities will include free parking, energy bars and gels, up to 3 feed stations, signposted route, mechanical support, event timing, showers and maps. Entry fees range from £22 to £15 which is again the norm with pretty much any sportive.
