Rating: Rate this Event Now

Now in it's 3rd year, The Tour of Cotswold Sportive will be held on Sunday 20 July 2014 and will offer 2 beautiful rides through the heart England and Wales' largest area of outstanding natural beauty

The ride will start from Shipston on Stour and both routes will be comprehensively signed and either 76 or 52 miles in length.

Entries open in January 2014, close on 18 July 2014 and the sportive has increased from 300 riders last year to 500 riders
Both rides flow from beautiful Cotswold village through rolling countryside to another beautiful village with some challenging climbs on the routes - the 72 mile ride takes in the hills of Blockley, Stanway, Fish Hill and home to the 2010 UK National Hill Climb, Dover's Hill.  The 52 mile route includes all of the same climbs bar Stanway.

Final stage of 2014 Tour de France will be shown on big screen back at HQ - fingers crossed 'Froomey' can repeat the success of 2013 and bring the maillot jaune home to Paris again

There will be well stocked feed stations on route and catering available at the start and finish HQ. 

Mechanical support will be available at the HQ prior to the start and riders will be able to purchase essential supplies if you've forgotten to pack them.

A 'broom' wagon will offer some mechanical assistance on the road and will ensure all riders get safely back to the HQ should you incur a non-repairable mechanical.
