Entry for the annual Appleby Sportive rides is now open via the British Cycling website: www.britishcycling.org.uk. Just search the events section using the key word “Appleby”
The event consists of a choice of 4 courses; 38Km, 72Km, 100km and 118Km, with all starting and finishing at the Ramsey Rugby Club in the Mooragh Park, Ramsey. The 32Km is a flat route around the Northern Plains and is suitable for all abilities. The 72, 100 & 118Km routes have 1, 2 & 3 major climbs respectively; Druidale, Slieau Whallian & the Sloc.
Manx Timing Solutions will be providing the event timing and each participant will be logged at the start, at checkpoints along the way and again at the finish. This will provide entrants with their times for each section and allow for comfort breaks & regroupings at each checkpoint. It also means that participants may choose which course they wish to complete on the day as the timing system will identify the course option ridden from the number of checkpoints the rider has dibbed at.
Any enquiries to Richard Fletcher on 818008.
