Broughton Castle Cycling Sportive on Sunday 12 July 2020

Now in its eighth year, the Broughton Castle Cycling Sportive 2020 has the unique feature of starting and finishing in the grounds of Broughton Castle, near Banbury which provides the perfect backdrop for an amazing event. All of the sportive routes wind their way through the picturesque Cotswold Hills and villages.

This event offers a challenge for every level of cyclist with five sportive routes available,  a Family Fun Ride (5miles), Cotswold Tour (20 miles), Cotswold Classic (50 miles), Windrush Endurance (75 miles) and the Cotswold Beast (100 mile) all of which provide memorable rides.

There are also team trophies for the 50, 75 and 100 rides and if you enjoy cycling with others as a team, then our “Challenge Rides” will appeal to you with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 riders in each team.

The event is organised by Banbury Cherwell Rotary Club which is a voluntary service organisation and to date a total of £70,000 has been raised with all proceeds from this event being distributed to Rotary and local charities.
