We’re really lucky that we’ve got a great cycling club pretty close to us called Performance Cycles who are committed to putting on great events throughout the year for their members and for cycling enthusiasts who want to give their riding some focus and a good degree of challenge. Whether it’s the Cotswold Spring Classic or the slightly chillier but equally challenging October event you’re in for some challenging Sportive riding in some of the best events we’ve taken part in (brilliant car parking, superb routes, great value for money with goodie bags and great food stops). These guys are passionate about cycling and they put events on that would fool anyone into thinking that it was an easy thing to do. Their style and spirit was evident through the entire Winter Mini Sportive Series that finished today. Six separate events of increasing challenge from October to March that gave many of us at the club a great focus for some more challenging rides and a good foundation for staying in good shape over the winter.
Our Chairman, Mick, managed to complete all 6 of the sportives and he’s pictured above with Andrew Kirk from Performance Cycles at the end of today’s event. It looks like Mick is probably outside the food wagon that serves up excellent post-ride Bacon and Egg butties, with tea/coffee and a host of other goodies. It’s amazing what the lure of a bacon buttie can do for Mick and it’s been a great effort to complete all of the rides.
We’d like to thank the guys at Performance Cycles for all of their efforts over the winter and there will be a few of the club at the Cotswold Spring Classic in a few weeks time who will be all the better prepared thanks to having had some great riding over the winter with the Performance Cycles team. Thanks guys and we look forward to supporting the events going forward. Chapeau to Mick and all the other riders for their efforts over the last few months.
