Borders Ciclista

03/05/2014 - Hawick - Multi-Day

Rating: Rate this Event Now

The Borders Ciclista is very different to any other Sportive event in the UK. Based on a Spanish sportive format, it combines the fun and relaxation of a mass ride, the challenge of covering a large distance and the semi-competive elements provided by timed sections. Admire the fantastic scenery on offer in the Borders, while also testing yourself over one or two days on some great roads.

Whats new for 2014?
This year the two day event is being repeated, with the option of doing one day or both, but the days have been switched round so that the harder rider is on the Sunday. 

Choose from the following options: 

Day 1 - Sat 3rd May - 'Traditional' Route - Approx 75 miles with three timed sections, each one with a different character. Bailout option giving shorter route of approx 50 miles available.

Day 2 - Sun 4th May - 'Shorter easier route - not as hilly as the short route in 2013. Actual route TBC.

Both Days - Relax post ride with hot food (inclusive in entry) where a full bar will also be available.

The entry fee for the event is £15 for one day, or £25 for two. 

There is also the option of having a custom top-end Endura race jersey for the special price of £32 if ordered when entering - see below! 

Priority booking will be given to those wishing to take part in both days. If you book for one of the two days, it will be provisional, and these booking will then be used to fill out each day up to a maximum of 100 riders per day. 

This is not a race! Strava to be used for times. 

For 2014, we have decided to publish the timed sections in advance through Stava, and if you wish to record your times, please bring a smartphone or GPS device as we will not be recording or publishing times using any other system. The sections will be publised nearer to the event, and an email will be sent to informing entrants that they are available. 

It's for Charity!
For 2014 we have decided not to support a major charity, and instead drop the price and offer food on Saturday after the ride, and then put any profits towards a local small chairty (charity TBC).
