If you’re looking for an early sportive to kick start your 2019 season then look no further than the Starley Sportive, which is being organised and held by Coventry Road Club. Given Coventry is the European City of Sport for 2019 you can be sure this fundraising sportive is going to be a ton of fun!

Booked for a mid Feb start, riders can choose between 3 different distances and routes that will take them through beautiful Warwickshire countryside:

  • Epic Route - 86.5 miles

  • Long Route - 63.2 miles

  • Short Route - 28.6 miles

The event has received high praise from local riders and there are a number of features in place that we are sure will appeal to riders, including:

  • GPS routes and fully signed routes

  • Automatic chip timing

  • Free tea/coffee/cake for finishers

  • Support of mobile bike mechanics

  • Car parking and bike racking

The proceeds of the event will go to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, and the event is exceptionally well priced!

  • Early bird pricing of £10 per rider - available until 01/01/2019

  • Online entries thereafter are charged at £12 per rider - available until 07/02/2019

  • Entry on the day (subject to availability) - £15 per rider

Given the great pricing and the choice of distances available I think it’s safe to say we’ll be looking at riding this event!
