MTB sportives

There are a few fairly local MTB sportives coming up over the coming months. A Chance to discover some more local bridleways. Evans cycles is running the following:

15th October Epping Forest
12 November Biggin Hill
26th November Gatwick
3rd December Dorking

Wiggle are also running the Hill a Saurus MTB ride on the Jurassic coast on the 20th November.

The same applies there are usually 3 distances so the rides should be open to all. Any interest then please let me know and I can put something up on the Newsletter or website.

  1. I suggested that Mountainbike Sportive miles should count as more than 1:1 for the Sportive Trophy, Rob Scoufield agrees (1.25 or 1.5 but no “towpath” rides) – what do people think?


  2. I also think that in future we need to agree a multiple for MTB sportives. However this years Trophy was agreed at the AGM as just a total mileage. So would be unfair in my view to change the goal posts during the course of the year having agreed the parameters at the AGM/ Up for discussion at the AGM for next year would be a good idea though!

  3. Agreed. Riding time on day 1 of the SDW event saw me cover 63 miles. Similar hilly road sportive would be about a 100 or so in the same ride time for me
