Sportive Announcement–Sunday 21st June 2015

For some time now we have been looking at creating our own Sportive ride but in an already saturated marketplace we wanted to create something a bit different and one that was not just a money making exercise for a business or individual. Therefore when we were approached by Ashley and Tracey at The Hawk Conservancy to help create a ride for them we jumped at the opportunity. Most of us in Andover are aware of the Hawk Conservancy and their good work, no doubt those of us with children will all have visited and seen what they do first hand. What I was unaware of was that they are a registered charity, operating on admission fees and their own fund-raising efforts. Behind The Bikeshed are providing our logistical and technical support with all the money generated going to the Trust and if successful, this will become an annual event.

The single route, single fee ride we have put together is demanding, with some 2000m of climbing in it’s 70 miles. There are only 250 places available for the ride and in addition to the ride itself, participants can also enjoy discounted Family tickets on the day for the Hawk Conservancy, along with a discount voucher for use in their cafe. The event is also British Cycling affiliated. Further information is available on the Hawk Conservancy website, along with details on how to enter. Please support this worthwhile cause.
