2018 Sportives

After doing lots of sportives in 2017 and sticking to my rule of always choosing the longest route, I’m beginning to think about 2018 and what I should do. One thing I know is I need to stretch myself and push on beyond what I did in 2017.

I’ve absolutely loved the UK Cycling Events in particular and fully intend to do lots of them in 2018. I’m going to add to this various other sportives I like the look of and some more challenging rides.

I have the following events booked so far.
