Martin Harrison from Southern Sportive the company behind the event said: "Please don't turn up at the event unless you have a place booked. We can't take riders who will put us over capacity. This is a very popular event, and we'd love to accommodate everyone who wants to take part, but we have to keep the event to a level that we know the event centre and course area can manage. Sportives are in the spotlight and we all, organisers and riders, need to showcase the best side of our sport and keep the public on our side."

The Princes Risborough event, which traditionally takes place on the nearest Sunday to St George's Day, is one of the oldest Chiltern's sportives; dating back to 2007. The course winds through the Chiltern Hills in full Spring bloom; tree blossoms and bluebells add splashes of colour to take your mind off of the relentless hills. It's a challenging course that wears you down by attrition, but it's great ride too and an event that justifies its popularity.

Southern Sportive's next event will be the Wight Riviera Sportive on 19th May, featuring a closed road loop, one of only a few sportives to offer this.
