A sportive, and a family ride, to honour a cycling icon and 1948 Olympic medalist, Tommy Godwin. All the profits will go towards the running costs of the Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull, where Tommy spent his last few days. This year our aim is to raise the £7,300 required to 'Pay for a Day' of running the hospice. There are two routes, a 30km route for families and the less experienced cyclists and a more challenging 100km route with feed station and timing.  The well-signed routes wend their way through the Warwickshire lanes, with the sportive making a brief foray into Worcestershire via Feckenham.  There are a couple of fords en route for the adventurous, but don't worry there are alternative paths! With only a couple of climbs, it's the ideal end of season event both for the experienced rider and those looking for their first sportive after a summer of training.  Both start and finish at the hospice, where there are toilets and a café for that post ride refuel. Free parking is provided at Solihull School nearby. Women are especially welcome.
