After the great success of the first Butleigh Sportive last year the 2019 Butleigh Sportive will be held on Sunday 29th September 2019.

 

Starting and finishing at the Butleigh Village playing fields pavilion near Glastonbury, the Butleigh Sportive is a non-competitive, fun and friendly cycle ride for all abilities. Organised by cyclists, the main emphasis of this sportive is an event where you can enjoy a great ride through the beautiful Somerset countryside alongside your cycling friends.

 

Both the 100km and the 50km routes will be the same as last year with the 100km route including a climb up the famous Cheddar Gorge and onto the Mendip Hills. Both routes will include a halfway stop at Sweets Café in Westhay for refreshments if you wish.

 

Last year we had over 150 riders and this year we are hoping to have more, we would request that you register your entry online via the registration page so we can monitor the number of riders entering. Official registration forms can then either be downloaded, completed and scanned to butleighsportive@hotmail.com or brought with you on the day of the event. Registration will be from 7:00am on the 29th September at the Butleigh Playing Fields Pavilion. Please note only fully completed and signed registration forms will be accepted. We will accept rider entries on the morning of the event.

 

The cost of the sportive will be £10 per rider which will include the rider insurance levy. All profits from the sportive will go to the Butleigh Playing Field Association so events like this can continue.

 

Coffee, Tea and Cake will be available before and after the ride.

 

The start time for riders on the 100km route will be approximately 8.30am with the 50km riders leaving after. The start will be staggered with small groups of riders setting off a minute or so apart.

 

There will be car parking on site however if you are local to Butleigh please could we ask that you ride to the start. There are full changing facilities and showers at the Pavilion for you to use if needed.
