Puncheur Cycle Sportive
PPYCC riders are invited to ride in the Puncheur Cycle Sportive on Sunday 4th March – starting in Ditchling
A Sportive is an organised, mass-participation cycling event. Riders are timed and can aim to achieve a set time for the distance. There are also feed stations and technical back up provided. Riding with hundreds of other riders is also very motivating and exciting.
The Puncheur Sportive is 69 miles long and finishes with the legendary climb of Ditchling Beacon!
However PPYCC members have been given special permission to attempt a shortened course of 53 miles (cutting a few corners) whist riding as a team under coach supervision. We have also been offered half price entry at £11, worth it for the food alone!
To ride you must be 12 or over and have your parents’ permission. You will also need to have done some longer training rides before the day.
Riders under 14 years of age signing up with through club will have to do the shortened route offered. ‘Broom wagon’ assistance is available on the day if needed.
A real early season test but one that several riders should be able to tackle!
Any questions or if you would like to reserve a place please contact Charlie on firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday 21st Jan
