Great news! The Cornwall Coast and Clay Sportive is back again for 2017. Building on the success of 2015 and 2016, this year’s event will be even bigger and better.
Already popular with those riders who took part last year, ‘Cycling Weekly’ has recognised this event as one of ’20 of the best British sportives to ride in 2017’. So if you want to experience some of the most scenic cycling in Britain, now is the time to plan a weekend away in the beautiful county of Cornwall and get your entry in soon.
This year’s nominated charities are:
Merlin MS Centre (www.merlinmscentre.org.uk)
Cornwall Hospice Care (www.cornwallhospicecare.co.uk)
