The winter MINI Sportive 2017 - 2018


The Winter Mini Sportives are designed to keep you motivated throughout the winter months so you feel ready to hit the summer sportives.


The Winter Sportive will be based at St George’s Hall in Stoke Holy Cross. Just 3 miles South of Norwich.


There are two distances to choose from either 50 miles or 25 miles.


The routes will depend on the weather. If the weather is below 3 degrees over night, we will use the gritted route to ensure rider safety. If the weather is above 3-4 degrees the course will be a bit more rural but on free draining good roads to ensure a good ride.


Included in the cost is free tea and instant coffee at the start (only available at start)  to warm you up before heading out and we will handing out at registration a goody bag of energy food to help get you round the course as there will be no feed-zones on route.  This food will include some of our favourites from our summer sportives.


Back at the event centre upon finishing the ride there will be delicious home made cakes on sale at £2.00 each. or £1.50 for flapjacks etc.


Also on finishing the ride we will also be selling 'proper' coffee i.e. freshly ground coffee in the form of Latte, flat whites, Espresso, Americano  and Cappuccino. These will all sell for £2.00 each.

Tea will cost £1.00, where we will have a selection of teas available.



You can pay either online to reserve your space or just turn up on the day if we haven't sold out online.



There is very limited parking at St Georges Hall so please arrive by bike if you can. There is parking available at STOKE HOLY CROSS PLAYING FIELD, Long Lane, Stoke Holy Cross, NR14 8LY which is approx 1/2 mile from the start.


Routes will be made available to download from the Saturday PM before the event is due to take place,


Limited to 200 places.


Please note: There will be no rider numbers, Medals or Mechanical Support for these events. There will be an emergency number displayed at the start for when you can't make it round or need collecting and bring back to the event centre. This is not for fixing punctures etc.
