What better way to spend this coming Saturday (March 12) than taking to the fast, flat roads around Cheshire for this year’s Jodrell Bank Cyclosportive? Last year the event attracted more than 700 riders who chose between three distances of 30, 50 and 80 miles but take note that HQ has switched venues this year to the Poynton Leisure Centre which has ample car parking, changing rooms and showers. This is a well signed event with route cards and GPS details downloadable from the website, plus support vehicles, feed stations and post-race refreshments. Online entries (£15 for 30miler, £25 for both the 50 and 80) close this Wednesday (March 9) but entry on the day is possible with a £5 surcharge.
