The Tommy Godwin Challenge sportive was set up in 2013 to honour the memory of 1948 Olympic cycling medallist Tommy Godwin. All profits go to fund the West Midlands Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull where Tommy spent his last few days. So far we have raised over 60,000.

There are three routes, 30, 73 and 100km. The 30km ride is for families and the less experienced cyclists. The more challenging 100km sportive route and the intermediate 73km sportive route both have a refreshment stop and timing. The well-signed routes wend their way through the Warwickshire lanes, with the 100km sportive making a brief foray into Worcestershire via Feckenham. There are a couple of fords en route for the adventurous, but don't worry there are alternative paths! With only a couple of climbs, it's the ideal end of season event both for the experienced rider and those looking for their first sportive after a summer of training.

There are no expensive fees, no headline sponsors, no goodie bags, no numbers, no gold standard times, no broom wagons and no pretending at the finish to have looked into the jaws of hell and survived.

The Autumn Audax is cycling at its best. Its about a good distance in a day, riding at a sensible pace with good company, traveling through the quiet and pleasant countryside in the orange glow of an autumn day before winter arrives.

The once popular 'Beyond the Dyke' organized by Alan Mason, disappeared off the calendar some fifteen years ago following his retirement. Well, the event is now back by popular demand. Like King Offa, we will be sending an army of cyclists over the Dyke into the badlands of Mid-Wales. These border raiders will be challenged by some charming countryside which continually varies from the airy views from Brown Clee to the deep cleft valleys near the striking Knucklas Viaduct. On their return, the riders will pass through the tranquil and delightful Teme Valley before a final assault over the Abberley Hills.

Leaving Cannock Chase on tree lines roads we soon head out into the countryside, riding over Blithfield Reservoir and on to the steepest climb of the day, Buttermilk Hill (a modest 13%). We take you through the pretty village of Tixal, full of wonderful architecture to keep your eyes occupied as well as your legs.

A generous supply of High5 energy products and cake should keep you going before a final climb into the Chase and back to base.

The Wiggle Forest Ranger Sportive offers beautiful, undulating English countryside on a ride that will take you through the best and most scenic parts of East Staffordshire and Leicestershire counties, also encapsulating the most enticing cycling roads around The National Forest.

Starting from Uttoxeter Racecourse, the course heads south, circumnavigating Blithfield Reservoir to Abbots Bromley, where the route moves west to enter the National Forest at Newborough.

Working the way west to Barton-under-Needwood, Short riders head north and split at this point, while Standard and Epic riders bear south, winding the way through the quiet and tranquil country lanes that last until the outskirts of Twycross are reached.

Next, its onto Measham for the second split of the day. Standard riders will go out eastwards while Epic riders go south for a loop that takes in the sleepy towns of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Moira among others, before rejoining the rest of the course at Netherseal.

From here the course heads back east and into Barton-under-Needwood once again, where the sportive ventures north through the Needwood Forest, finally leaving the National Forest at Marchington for the final leg back to ride HQ, where a finishers medal and t-shirt wait for you on crossing the line.

For our fifth visit to the area, weve teamed up with Cycling Mallory, an exciting new organisation devoted to all things cycling.

Based from the impressive Mallory Park in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, were ideally setup for a great days riding. Not only is this a fantastic location to start a ride, all participants will get a couple of laps on the motor circuit included in the entry fee! Once youve warmed up on the track, its straight out into the countryside for an autumn-winter road fest. The routes are fairly flat with undulating sections but a great chance to clock up some end of year miles. Quiet country lanes form the most part and make for a fantastic day in the saddle, whether youre taking on the 30, 50 or 70 mile option.

Once youve burnt enough calories to start thinking about the following months festivities, head back to the event centre for a finishing warm down lap and hot chocolate.
