MORE ABOUT THE SPORTIVE SERIES

 

This series is aimed at all cyclists, from beginners to experienced riders, and offers the perfect platform if you want to keep fit riding road events throughout the year, improving your times and setting a new personal best. If you’re brave enough to take on the challenge of the longer routes, the series is a great test for endurance and stamina …and needless to say, completing all the events will be a great source of personal achievement. No pressure though! Each one is also a standalone event, so you don’t have to enter all in the Sportive Series.

Following this event, there will be one more event held at Perdeberg Winery. THis is the SPortive #7 which we had postponed and will not be held on 8th of December 2019

 

THE SPECIAL FINISHER’S TROPHY

 

This year, we have decided to do away with medals and do something more innovative and challenging – you will get a beautiful 3D bicycle puzzle that you can assemble once you have completed all the events. The way it will work is that after each event, you will receive a few pieces of the trophy … complete all eight events and you can assemble the little road bike on a stand.

However, even you haven’t done all the Sportive Series events, or won’t manage to do all the events, you’ll still be able to buy the missing pieces at a very reasonable cost at the Sportive #8. We still want everyone to have that trophy to display at their home or office.

 

DIRECTIONS TO THE VENUE
