SportiveUK Announce The Festive 50 Sportive

by Holly Blades

Christmas is a wonderful time of year. A time to spend with family and friends. It's also an exciting time for cyclists as our stockings are often filled with bike related goodies and there's the christmas sales that can fuel our obsession with 2 wheels and pedal power even more.

Unfortunately Christmas is not always conducive to bike riding, winter roads may not always be suitable and those who don't like to ride alone might find it hard to find ride partners.


Well SportiveUK have the answer, The Festive 50 sportive will take place on Wednesday the 27th of December, when a lot of employers shut down for this period and many find themselves twiddling their thumbs after the excitement of Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

SportiveUK have a choice of 50, 30, 40 or 19 mile routes that take place on roads specifically chosen for their rideability at this time of year. You can try out your new cycling pressies or simply work off that turkey and mince pies.

Starting and finishing at Broomfield Football club just north of Chelmsford, SportiveUK will take you through a winter wonderland of scenic Essex countryside with two well stocked feed stations along the way.
