After the success of our 1st ever sportive in August 2016, we are already planning and looking forward to our 2nd in 2017. We have decided to raise funds for 3 charities this year Women v Cancer, which is made up of 3 charities, Ovarian Cancer Action, Breast Cancer Care and Jo's Cervical Trust. Our other chosen charities are Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Carlton Lodge Activity Centre Bursary Fund who are kind enough to host the event for us.
The sportive is aimed at all ladies who are just starting out on Sportives or ladies who do Sportives regularly. We will have 3 route options.
30 miles - Cup o tea an a piece of cake - Route for ladies who are just starting doing sportive - flattish route.
60 miles - Reet gud ride - For ladies who are ready to go that bit further with a couple of hills thrown in.
103 miles - By eck tha wa ard ride - For ladies who are ready to try for their 1st 100 miles with hills thrown in.
There will be a medal for each participant and more importantly a cake when you finish your ride :)

Info for Riders
This is our second charity sportive and we are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces again from our 2016 participants. We are also hoping to encourage ladies to get on their bikes and try sportive if you have never done one before. The routes will have manned feed stations and mechanical support, don't worry if you have no one to ride with, we will have an active Facebook group for the event so you can get chatting to other ladies on there too. There are also marshals on some parts of the routes and the routes will be well signposted. It will however be your responsibility to make sure you take a copy of the maps with you which we will provide for you to print off. There will be accommodation or camping available at the event, for more details see Carlton Lodge. There will also be pre / post event soft tissue therapy including traditional massage £5 for 10 mins. available with half of the cost going towards the charities.
