Motion in Mercia 2015
26/04/2015 - Weston Park, Staffordshire - Sportive
The Midlands sportive challenge set to the backdrop of Britain's industrial heritage. It's where the modern World got in motion.
We've got 2 exhilarating routes, slightly revised from last year. Both routes depart from Aldersley Leisure Village and head off to the climb up to the tranquil forest of Cannock Chase. Then it's a gentle open descent and easy cruise to the feed station via some of the quietest South Staffordshire lanes. The long route takes riders 'all around the Wrekin' - the historic West Mercian beacon hill, then down to the Severn Valley and onto UNESCO world heritage site, Ironbridge. It was this place that got the modern industrial world in motion!
At KILO TO GO we go the extra mile to make sure you have a great day:
No need to queue - we don't want you queuing at the start of the day - we post your 'Ticket to Ride' pack prior to the event so that you don't have to come to the registration desk on the day.
ALL our finishers receive the following, no matter when you sign up: A HIGH5 taster pack, a pro-quality 750ml water bottle, a useful drawstring goodie bag, a finisher's medal, a certificate, and a short video of the moment you cross the finish line, plus more....
All events feature: class leading UHF electronic timing, event photography from one of professional cycling's best known photographers and his side-kicks, well stocked feed stations, and mechanical support. Toilets are available at all our HQs and feed stations for your comfort.
Medical Safety: Out on the route we provide motorcycle outriders and paramedic backup for your safety. Add to that our highly visible broom wagon that'll sweep up any riders that require taking back to the HQ.
Great signage: Riders always tell us that our routes have the best signage. Our highly visible magenta signs will direct you around the course and clearly mark route split points so that you always end up on your chosen route.
