Tommy Godwin Sportive - Sunday 23rd September 2018

Owen and I have previously pedalled the Tommy Godwin sportive and we think this might be of interest to local riders!

The event has been running for a few years now and is exceptionally well organised by Tommy’s family and friends and is a great fund raising exercise, generating much needed funds for the West Midlands Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull; where Tommy spent his last few days.

Three routes are available, 30km, 73km and 100km. Each route is always very well signposted, with plenty of marshals on the road to offer support and guidance. It’s suitable for family riders as well as experienced road riders. The scenery is really quite pretty given the suburban route!

Coffee and cake at the end are always plentiful!

Ticket prices range between £10 and £23 depending on how you enter and which route you choose. To enter online simply visit: https://tommygodwinchallenge.weebly.com/enter.html

Pre registration for the event is available up to 19th September. Entry on the day is also available but unfortunately riders can not be guaranteed a place so enter online to secure your place!
