The Great Western Sportive launched in 2010 to provide an epic premier event in the heart of the south. With a full 100 mile top distance and a huge 2,000 rider capacity, this ride is big every sense!
Rolling across the ancient Ridgeway and winding through the beautiful Marlborough Downs, the route is a real treat, with broad, open roads echoing the sweep of the scenery. The folds of the Downs provide the gradients to put you to the test, but this is a ride to reward you for every challenge, not beat you relentlessly into submission. A rider’s ride, if you will.
