The Severn Bridge Sportive, run by Andy Cook Cycling Ltd, is back for 2012 and will take place on the new date of Sunday 26th August 2012 tieing it in with the first ever Castle Combe Cycling Festival.
A choice of two route options –
- 100 miles
- 56 miles
“The ride will start and finish at Castle Combe Circuit with the route taking riders down the Cotswold escarpment to the North of Bath and Bristol before taking in the Classic Severn Bridge crossing.
The half way point for the short ride and the first stop for the longer route uses Bulwark community centre on the outskirts of Chepstow close to the Severn Bridge crossing.
The long route then climbs through Wentwood used for the UCI Ladies World Cup race in 2005 prior to dropping into Usk and Raglan then tackling the steep Star Hill before dropping back to the original feedstop for more refreshment. The long route then joins the short route home with the Hawkesbury Upton climb and Badminton village featuring before dropping back to Castle Combe Circuit.”
