The 5th Annual Sportive which will take place on Sunday 15th September. The event has attracted over 900 riders to the town since it was launched in 2014. As well as providing an opportunity for novice riders to test themselves, we also put on a longer ride for experienced cyclists. We also work closely with local businesses to ensure that everyone benefits.
The Gayford Flyer is a non-competitive cycle sportive.
There are two signed rides of 62 miles (100km) and 31 miles (50km). Entry is via the British Cycling website and the last day is Sunday, 8th September. There is no entry on the day. Riders pay £12.50 to enter and helmets are compulsory.
“Last year’s sportive was fantastic”, said Mike Motteram, Chairman of Hadleigh Cycling Club. “Most of the riders and their families stayed around and enjoyed refreshments and live music at The George.”
British Cycling said that the Flyer “was a super event – well thought through, well executed and very enjoyable to be part of.”
One of the entrants emailed afterward; “Completed the Spitfire route. Thought it was one of the best sportives I’ve done, friendly marshals, riders, superb route and great atmosphere, mind you the weather couldn’t have been better. I’ll be signing up next year.”
