2018 RBC Gran Fondo Whistler, September 8th.

The Great Western Sportive

The Great Western Sportive

June 17 2018
Swindon, South East, UK

The Great Western Sportive has established itself as a must do event since it's launch in 2010! A fantastic route that fits perfectly into our 'riders rides' ethos, with a full 100 mile top distance, this ride is big every sense! And the new May date will make this a real late spring treat!

Rolling across the ancient Ridgeway and winding through the beautiful Marlborough Downs, the route is a real treat, with broad, open roads echoing the sweep of the scenery. The folds of the Downs provide the gradients to put you to the test, but this is a ride to reward you for every challenge, not beat you relentlessly into submission. A riders ride, if you will.
