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!”

What a fantastic fortnight it’s been on the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week Lanzarote. 70 riders enjoyed constant sunshine, learnt new skills, conquered some iconic climbs and ate a lot of ham and cheese rolls! Full round up to come #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #springcamp #cyclingcamp #trainingcamp #high5 #alecustomuk #conticycling #contityres #lazerhelmetsTuesday summed up in pictures: 🚴‍♀️☀️ 💨🐫🍹🧘‍♂️🥉31 miles completed today as a warm up before the ‘big one’ tomorrow. Lovely, sunny, but fairly windy, day out on the beautiful roads of Lanzarote! The camels made an appearance as the groups came back over Fire Mountain. Great turnout for the stretching session with Ben @bp.triathlete_ back at base, and then the ACC team came third in the Club La Santa quiz! Phew! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #mortensjuicebar 
#stretchingforcyclists #firemountain #camelsGreat day out has by all! 68 miles, 5500ft climbing and some excellent group riding - well done all! Particular highlights of today were the gorgeous views and gentle winds! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #cyclingcamp #trainingcamp #wintercyclingNice gentle 37 mile ride today to Femara for coffee in the sunshine ☀️😊 #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #coffeeinthesun #trainingcamp #andycookbikeweek #wintercyclingGreat riding from everyone today on the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week. 55 miles to Arieta, up the 10km Haría climb, a well-deserved sandwich at the top and then a fun descent back down with a tailwind! #groupriding #teamwork #harialanzarote #kom #andycookcycling #andycookbikeweek #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #wintertraining #trainingcampWeek 2 has begun! We welcomed 40 sets of fresh legs to the camp today, with a very windy (but mainly dry) 47 mile ride. The best bit was the El Golfo coffee stop that some riders took, while other groups went onto Yaiza before heading home into a strong head wind. Looking forward to the rest of the week with a great bunch of people! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #lanzarote #cyclingcamp #wintermiles #trainingcampAfter a tough old day in the saddle yesterday (160km), it was lovely to have a gentle final 50km ride on Week 1 of the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week. Followed by the traditional crazy golf tournament and rounded off by a game of Jenga! Thanks to all the clients who have  made Week 1 so brilliant! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #lanzarote #cyclingcamp #andycookbikeweek‘Recovery day’ today on the Andy Cook Bike Week - 50km into another strong wind (although it has changed direction!) with delicious sarnies and fresh juice at Morten’s Juice Bar. Then there was a stretching session for all back at the hotel - although quite a few people weren’t all that stretchy! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #recoveryride #mortensjuicebar #freshjuice #stretchingforcyclists #cyclistsarenotflexibleIt’s been a great couple of days on the bikes in Lanzarote. A tough 70-miler today put everyone through their paces, but look at all the smiles! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #andycookbikeweek #lanzarotecycling #bikecamp #trainingcamp #wintersun #wintertraining #getthemilesin
