Spring Sportive 2016

Sportive 2016
Sportive 2016
After the success of last years Sportive we have made the 2016 event even bigger. This year we have introduced a 100 mile route to the already succesful 15, 45, and 70 mile routes but the new route which will only have 60 places and has over 4500 feet on climbing riding through Long Crendon and carrying on through March Gibbon before returning back through Weedon. To add to all this we will have the Air Ambulance helicopter landing at the school (subject to missions on the day) where you can actually meet the pilots and crew along with the other emergency services. This event will be suitable for the whole family with Face Painting, Craft stalls Fairground Rides and not forgetting the Barbecue and Raffle once again supported by the local Mayor so not only can you ride the event you can bring the whole family along. Come and give this event your support by riding one of the courses or just coming to meet the crew, this is a very worthy Charity event and is an essential service for everyone in the community
