KING EDWARD 100 - Sunday 6th May 2018
The ‘King Edward 100’ brings all of the Sportive HQ style of doings things – a big event at small event prices.
We do allow Time Trial bikes, aero bars etc, in fact we do allow all bikes types as agreed by our insurer.
The other thing we like to do is feed you well. At registration we give you a large flapjack from ‘Dorset Flapjacks’ (480cal approx!) and a pack of Haribo. Once you get to the first feed station, there’s a packed lunch, a selection of teas or coffee and plenty of SIS electrolyte. If you’re on the 100 mile route, the second feed stations has teas and coffee, cake, fruit, more Haribo and SIS, so you should be able to stay the distance!
The start HQ has plenty of car parking space, and will feature some good local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments by the Coffee Stop.
If you are doing either the long or medium routes, please feel free to change on the day itself, just let us know when you get back if you changed routes, we like a relaxed atmosphere for this.
New for 2018 is the ‘short’ route of 25 miles. This route doesn’t have a feed stop on the route but the price includes hot food and cuppa on return.
There will be free photos to download from Adie’s Photography, a top local cycling photographer.
We hope that after you’ve tried the King Edward 100, you’ll be hooked on our value for money sportives where a great day out on the bike is all that matters.

This Pactimo Continental Standard Short Sleeve Jersey is great quality. It is classed as a race fit jersey (quite tight) so if you want something a little looser then go one size up.
