Entry for the 2016 edition of the ever popular Santini Cotswold Spring Classic is now open. The Easter Monday event has fast become a must-do ride for many, offering an early-season leg-tester. 

Event Director, Andy Kirk said: "Last year's event was a huge success and even with the increase in numbers to 800 we sold out well before the entry system was due to close. We've managed to get additional parking for 2016, so we're able to increase the rider limit to 900, but after this I don't know where else we could park people!" 

The event continues to be sponsored by Italian clothing giant Santini, so riders can expect extra special goodie bags. With the Cotswold Spring Classic coinciding with Easter Monday there will also be an Easter egg for every participant. 



With an early Easter in 2016, the Cirencester-based event will take place on Monday 28 March. Offering riders a choice of three fully signed routes, motorcycle outrider support, medical cover, mechanical back-up, broom wagon, electronic timing and more - it's everything you'd expect from a first-rate sportive. 

Once back at the event HQ riders will be treated to a hot meal, the aforementioned goodie bag and a finishers' medal - all for just £28.00 per rider. 

Earlier this year Cyclosport's Jennifer Trotman rode the event. Read her review HERE.
