Welcome to the Cheshire Mini Sportive organised by Team Torelli Cycling Club. We have got two great routes 30 mile and 60 miles designed by experienced local club riders. The event has been designed help you blow off the cobwebs after the winter break and ease you back into the new sportive season
Both routes are relatively flat with just a few bumps in them to keep it interesting Starting off once again at the Poynton Leisure Centre the riders will head off round the Cheshire plains. There are no big climbs, most of the route is relatively flat or are on undulating roads.
The weather in Cheshire is relatively mild compared to the rest of the North West at this time of year being protected by the Welsh hills in the West and the Pennine hills on the East.
You do not need to be in a cycling club to enter the event. You just need to be fit enough to get round. We have two routes to suit all abilities. Have a road worthy bicycle (road, hybrid or mountain bike) and a helmet.
The event is insured by Cyclosure one of the countries leading cycle event insurers. We have support vehicles around the course with friendly event crew who are there to help.
Riders are set off in small groups, your number is scanned at the start and at the finish, times are published on the website on the Monday following the event.
