Looking for a late-season sportive to round off the year of Covid?

Entries are still open for two long-running UK sportives: the Tour of Worcester (Sunday 25th October) and the Essex Season Ender (15th November).

Both events are fully Covid-compliant, that means no entries on the day - so don't miss a chance to finish the season with a great ride.
