*Cancelled because of coronavirus. Entries are now open for the 2022 edition, taking place on Easter Monday - 18 April 2022.*
Following the cancellation of the 2020 event due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we're excited to announce that the Cotswold Spring Classic returns for 2021 - its 12th anniversary. We'll be coming back bigger and better than ever, albeit with some tweaks depending on the pandemic circumstance at the time!
Costing just £35.00 to enter, the sportive offers three route options (160km, 100km and 55km) through some of the best countryside the Cotswolds have to offer, meaning there's something for everyone. The 55km route gives riders new to the sport, or getting back on the bike after the long winter, the perfect first ride back. And if you're planning on riding either the 100km or 160km events you won't need to decide on the route you're taking until you get to the split point on the day.
Each route will be comprehensively signed, with well stocked feed stations out on the route (one for the 55km and 100km routes and two for the 160km route), motorcycle outrider support, medical cover from the GWAS Indepentant Ambulance Service and mechanical support from Performance Cycles (at the start, each feed station and also in a support car out on the road).
Once back from the ride, riders can expect a finishers medal, a goodie bag (complete with the all-important Easter Egg!!), hot food and showers / changing facilities*. Add to this the ample free parking, electronic timing and sign-on goodies, and at just £35.00 per rider it stacks up to a great value day in the saddle!!
The Cotswold Spring Classic has sold out every year for the last ten years, even with a massive 25% increase in capacity in 2016 to 1,000 riders. However, due to government restrictions we've had to scale back the 2021 edition to just 600 entries - so don't hang about, get your entry in now.
