This is the 12th annual Welland Wonders event, advertised this year as a sportive. As in previous years the event is governed by Audax UK, a long-distance cycling club which provides insurance, documentation and handles the entries. Audax events are organised by different cycle clubs right across the UK. This one is organised by Welland Valley Cycle Club.
The rides, on quiet country roads, are intended to be leisurely – certainly not races.
All proceeds go to charity.
This year the charities are:
There are three routes:
They are not signed so you need to be prepared! Check the routes online or manually. There are links to route sheets, online maps and gpx files to make preparation easier on the event website and at the links above.
You will have a card to record your progress. It will need to be stamped at checkpoints and, in addition, there will be ‘information controls’ asking you to record a detail nearby, e.g. the colour of a ribbon.
All rides start and finish at the Husbands Bosworth Sports Pavilion, on the left, 300 metres west of Husbands Bosworth (towards Lutterworth).
ENTRIES WELCOME ANY TIME up to 6pm on the day before, and are only £6 (all proceeds go to charity).
ON-THE-DAY ENTRIES should be possible, but will be £1 extra (£7). If possible, give Mike Vybiral a call on 07787 402 306 to check arrangements and to give him some notice.
