RIDER HQ: Polocini, The Factory, Waterfoot, Rossendale. BB4 9HR. 

EVENT INFO:  We organised the first Sprinter back in 2011. It was always our season opener with a mostly flat route around Cheshire.

After a break of a couple of years the event returns but with a few changes. We now have our own event venue in Lancashire. This ensures we can maintain the standard we set with previous events but also keep to the same entry fee we've been charging since 2013. 

The Sprinter is the perfect event to stretch your legs and get back in to the routine of riding. We have a 50 mile/80km route that has been designed to be just the right balance of climbing after the Winter and to fit in with our future events that will build ride distances throughout the year. 

This is going to be the first of many rides from our new home and we are looking forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones. We will be screening the Omloop race on the 26th so if you want to come and say hello and pick up your numberboard then you are welcome to join us. 

ENTRY FEE: Included in the entry fee is a custom numberboard, pre ride porridge/cereals/fruit, tea and coffee. A fully arrowed route with feed station and a backup recovery vehicle. Post ride pizza and pasta. 

We do not accept any entries on the day. Entries close one week before the event or when we reach the limit of 150 riders. 

ROUTE MAP AND GPX:  We have a page on the STRAVA exercise tracking app where you can view the route HERE

RIDER BRIEFING AND RULES:  We do not send out a pre ride briefing email. All the information you need can be found HERE

COVID/WEATHER/REFUNDS: As we have our own venue and will be running several events throughout the year this enables us to be flexible with rides and react to any future restrictions. 

Any entrant can change their entry to another ride if they give us at least six days notice before the event. 

Should there be adverse weather such as snow/ice we will reschedule the event for the following weekend or the next suitable date on our calendar. If a rider cannot make that date they can transfer entry to any of our other events. 

We do not offer refunds unless we cannot offer you another event to ride.
