Cross Border Sportive 2019

This years event will take place on 01 September 2019 and the organisers have asked us to share the details with members.  There are three routes; a 30 miler called ‘The Recce’, a 50 miler called ‘The Raid’ and an epic 80 miler called ‘The Invasion’ for the more adventurous!  Based at Lanercost Priory near Brampton, the routes have been tweaked to include some different roads to keep things interesting including an awesome, cake laden feed station.

They want youngsters to get out on their bikes and make sports part of everyday life.  So as a little encouragement, all under 16’s ride for free when accompanied by an adult (see t’s and c’s).

There are some great early bird offers and also group discounts for groups of 6 or more riders entering together.  Full details including entry are on the event website.
