After a year away from the town centre in Stafford, cycling is back with a sportive on 10th September and more to be announced in the coming weeks. Read on for more info on the sportive and check back as we launch more!
The Lewis Partnership Stafford Sportive
Just over 60 miles and featuring some of the favourite places our events have been in 2017, as well as some of our favourite roads for getting between them. Starting and finishing outside the Swan Hotel in Stafford, the ride is a tour of the best places we’ve been in 2017, our greatest hits tour if you like!
Along the way you’ll have an early water stop at the Dog & Doublet in Sandon, followed by 3 food stops, the first at Lymestone Brewery, the second at Sugnall Walled garden and the final one at the Red Lion in Bradley before heading back to Stafford for a warm welcome at the Swan Hotel.
Looking after you all the way
As always with our events, we’ll have first aid stationed along the way in case of any mishaps.
We’re also happy to announce this time that we’ll also have mechanical support on hand from Shimano. They’ll be on hand to do pre ride bike checks and minor tweaks the day before our sportive as well as being on hand on the course on Sunday.
And at the end?
A medal, a goody bag and a token to claim a half of beer from Black Country Brewery at either Shrewsbury Arms (you’ll pass it about 300m before the finish of your ride) or the Bird in Hand.
