The Cotswold Sportiv

The only organised bike ride I did this summer was the 100 km Cotswold Sportiv on the 27th of May.  The ride started and finished in Stratford-upon-Avon.  The route took us through several Cotswold villages, including Stanway where there was a substantial climb of two miles, averaging 7 %.  This will be a good one to train on if I make another visit to the Alpes.  

Gethin organised our entry to the sportiv, in aid of Cyclists Fighting Cancer.  The ride was a walk in the park for Gethin, but helped with his preparation for the Etape du Tour that he completed during this year’s Tour de France.  

I hope that the weather is better next year: I haven’t been out on my bike anywhere near enough this summer.  Perhaps I will enter the Solihull to Oxford ride in 2013.
