It is important that you prepare for this Sportive. Start your training early to ensure you have the requisite level of cycle fitness to complete your chosen route. We have an optional Training Program available if you would like some coaching before the Sportive. 

Have your bike properly serviced by a professional mechanic in good time before you arrive. Speak to your preferred bike shop or bicycle mechanic and book your service early to ensure you can get it done in time. Many a participant have failed to heed our advice and have faced the disappointment of being unable to complete their ride due to avoidable mechanical problems.
