Have a challenging and scenic day out on your bike
whilst helping African children get to school!
A non-competitive cycle challenge with a choice of four fully signposted courses: 30, 50, 70 and 100miles.
All riders who complete their challenge will be entered into a prize draw to win a holiday for 2 in the vibrant city of Barcelona.
There are also prizes for the teams which record the most miles.
The Cotswolds is well known for its beautiful countryside, gentle wolds, with river valleys, water meadows, beech woods and sleepy limestone villages. A mix of flatlands, rolling hills and sharp escarpments makes this area very special for bike rides such as the
JOLE RIDER SPORTIVE.
The event is centred on Westonbirt School, house and gardens, set in acres of stunning parkland with superb facilities for an event of this type. It is located close to the historic market town of Tetbury, known for its boutique shops, and a town rapidly becoming Gloucestershire's centre of cycling.
