Via Roma Colossus Sportive 2018
Sunday 29th April 2018
Riders will feel transported back in time passing through some idyllic and beautiful Cotswold villages. Due to the nature of the route you will encounter minimal traffic. If you fancy coming as a family why don't you book onto the family route, for a family of 4 it will cost £20 and you can take advantage of all of the below.
There are 3 emperor routes to choose from: Maximinus - 100 miles, Ceasar - 60 Miles, Otho - 15 Miles. The 100 and 60 mile routes are challenging, the Maximius route has 1,924 metres of climbing, which is the equivalent to riding up Mont Ventoux, the Ceasar route has 1,022 metres of climbing, however the routes take in some of the most beautiful roman roads the Cotswolds have to offer.
There are well stocked feed stations on all the routes. There is on the road support in the event of mechanical issues carrying all the necessary tools and spares to get you back up and running.
On completion you will be presented with a competitor’s medal, VEDETT beer and a hot fresh chilli that will be made by the excellent chefs at the Ragged Cot (vegetarian option will be available).
All routes are very well sign posted and GPX Routes will be sent out prior to the day. In an effort to encourage women to take part the organisers will provide women’s specific facilities at both feed stations, and female ride leaders if demand proves sufficient.
Exciting news that VEDETT continue to support the event and provide every rider with their own bottle of Belgium beer on completion of the sportive. The VEDETT team will also be on hand to personalise each bottle with a photograph of your choice, either as an individual or with a group of friends, with their unique bottle labelling equipment. What a great way to remember your Spring Via Roma Sportive experience, with friends in the heart of the Cotswolds.
