Now one of the UK's leading sportive events
The Saddleback Sodbury Cycle Sportive was conceived and developed by members of Chipping Sodbury Rotary Club and has been running for a number of years raising many thousands of pounds for (mainly) local charitable causes.
The event takes place annually in August and sees around 1000 cyclists completing well-planned, marked and marshalled routes through the beautiful countryside around Chipping Sodbury.
The Sportive is now run by by a dedicated group called All Chipping In, with assistance from the Rotary Club and others.
It is considered a must do sportive for all levels of cyclists, with some wonderful countryside, quiet lanes and beautiful views to be enjoyed.
The event starts just a couple of miles from the Headquarters of Saddleback, the exclusive importer of top high performance brands such as Castelli, Felt, Enve and Bont.
A choice of 3 distances (100 miles, 60 miles or 30 miles) will take riders along well signed (over 700 signs) and marshalled routes. Mechanical support at the start and along the route is provided, as well as a broom wagon to collect struggling riders.
The Rotary Club assists with marshalling and at Feed Stations along the route. These offer homemade food, refreshments and treats to the riders, as well as mechanical / breakdown assistance.
Everyone involved in this event - the organisers, the supporters, the participants and the public - has a great time, whilst at the same time providing much needed funds for many good causes.
