Date & New Sponsorship Announced for 2019 Severn Bridge Sportive

Andy Cook Cycling can now announce some exciting news regarding the 2019 Severn Bridge Sportive, to be held on Sunday 2nd June at the historic Castle Combe Circuit in Wiltshire:

To celebrate the 10th year of our event, we have partnered with the high-end Italian Cycle Clothing brand Alé to create the newly-named Severn Bridge Alé Sportive. 

Alé Custom Clothing has recently designed and created our new Andy Cook Cycling staff kit, and have also designed a revamped version of the original Andy Cook Cycling white kit – which is available to purchase here. The first 400 entrants into the Severn Bridge Alé Sportive will receive Alé goodies at registration, and there’s even talk of designing a special Sportive jersey to commemorate 10 years of the event, and of Andy Cook Cycling itself! Watch this space for updates on that, and other exciting news.

As ever, the 2019 Sportive will take in some of the area’s most beautiful countryside – including the Cotswold Edge, Ingleston Common, Star Hill, Raglan Castle, and many other historic villages, iconic views and picturesque roads. Not forgetting the splendour of the Old Severn Bridge, where our event photographer will be there to capture your smiles as you cross into Wales.

For the second time, we are pleased to say that our charity partner will be the National Autistic Society. We raised a great amount for this excellent charity in 2018 – but we’d love to smash our target of £2000 next year! You can help us do this by donating on entry into the event (it’s easy to add as little as £2 to your entry price and all of that will go to the charity) or you can fundraise by getting sponsored for completing the Sportive.

You can now enter the Sportive online here. We’ve kept the price the same as last year as our main aim is really to get people out on their bikes, enjoying our beautiful countryside and raising money for a good cause. If you’re still not sure, this is what you get for just £29:

  • Fully-signed choice of two routes (you can choose which to ride, as you go)
  • Timing chip and access to your time at the event finish
  • Complimentary HIGH5 Sports Nutrition to keep you fueled along the way
  • Support vehicle and en-route mechanic
  • A hot meal at the end of the ride
  • A personal greeting as you cross the finish line from our lovely staff and volunteers
  • An exclusive goody bag with Alé and HIGH5 products just for you!
  • Well-stocked feed stations with real food plus tea and coffee
  • Sign-on, start and finish at the historic Castle Combe Circuit
  • Event photographer
  • A family-friendly event – meet your family at the end at the Castle Combe Family Cycling Day and ride to the finish line with them!

And here’s just a few nice things participants have said to us after past events:

Thank you for organising and running the Sportive. It was challenging but there was definitely a great feel-good factor at the end. The feed station had a wonderful range of foods and was very welcome.”

 

“This year’s route to the Severn Bridge was most enjoyable, together with fabulous weather, the perfect day cycling.”

 

“FAB route today, glad I survived… and probably a new PB over 100 miles! Thank You to you and all the team for being so supportive as usual!”

A HUGE muchas gracias to all the staff at the fantastic Port Blue Club Pollentia Hotel and Spa for staying open and keeping us fed and watered extremely well in these mad times whilst we’re waiting to get off the island. All the ACC clients have now found flights home, and many have already made it back. We’d be completely stuck without Club Pollentia - many, many thanks. #portblue #clubpollentia #andycookcycling #teamacc #thankyou #mallorcacyclingThe inaugural Dan Opuku Award for Generosity of Spirit on the Andy Cook Cycling Spring Camp was awarded to James Taylor on Saturday night. Dan Opuku was a wonderful friend of Andy Cook Cycling over the years, who sadly passed away a year ago. James Taylor showed generosity, kindness, and all round ‘good egg’ vibes throughout his time on the Spring Camp 2020 and he truly deserves this reward! #generosityofspirit #teamplayer #welldeserved #andycookcyclingWe’re loving ‘lockdown’ on the island! Thanks to Club Pollentia and Port Blue for looking after us so well. Some people have managed to get on flights home, and the rest of us are waiting for the ‘rescue flights’ from our airlines. Sadly no riding allowed but the bar is open and the food is plentiful ☀️ 😎 🍻 🍸 #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorca #notcycling #properholiday #relaxThe final day of week one was warm and sunny and everyone made it up to Randa Monastery for coffee, cake and panoramic views of the island #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorcacycling #immuneboosting #sunshinecycling #escape #clubpollentia #high5 #portblue #alecustom #randa #iconicclimbAnother great day out on the bikes yesterday! The group got through 55litres of water thanks to the hot weather and epic climbs. We’re heading up Randa today and then looking forward to welcoming lots of new clients tomorrow for Week 2 of our Spring Camp. #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #puigmajor #iconicclimbs #coffeeandcake #cyclingcafe #smilesallround #everyonewelcomeAndy Cook Cycling’s sports nutrition partner HIGH5 supports our Spring Camp with loads of great products, and we couldn’t do it without them! HIGH5 have got a Buy One Get One Free offer on energy products at the moment - so why not make the most of this awesome deal and stock up for the coming season? #high5 #sportsnutrition #trainingpartner #fuelyourride #energyfood #energyproducts #andycookcycling 📸 @markwareham13We had a friend join us for coffee and cake at the Cap Formentor lighthouse yesterday (it wasn’t THAT goat though)! Day 4 was so hot and sunny - there were some interesting tan lines last night! The highlight of the day was the excellent quiz, hosted by our quiz masters Bob and Molly. Day 5 has got off to a good start - by the end of today, some riders will have tackled and conquered the epic Puig Major climb 🚵🏽‍♀️ #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #capformentor #uninvitedguest #sunshinecycling #puigmajor #cyclingclimbs #iconicclimbs #trainingcamp #cyclingholiday #high5 #alecustomukWe took a pre-ride photo as it’s such a lovely day! Day 4 is our ‘rest day’ - but they’ll still be rides heading to the gorgeous beach at Cala Sant Vincenc, the Campanet Caves and the famous Cap Formentor lighthouse. #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #hotdayonthebike #sunshinecycling #cyclingholiday #trainingcamp #clubpollentia #portblue #capformentor #campanetcaves #calasantvincenç #restdayA long day for some, but a great day for all on Day 3 of our Spring Camp! The sun shone, the climbs were challenging, and the cake (and ice cream) was delicious. The mileage today varied between 59 and 105 miles - well done everyone on an awesome day! #andycookcycling #teamacc #longdayinthesaddle #cakeandcoffee #sunshinecycling #gooddayonthebike #mallorcacycling #soller #valldemossa #iconicclimbs #alecustomuk #high5sports #clubpollentia
