Wiltshire Wildcat - 82 Mile Road Cycling Sportive
2 people attending

Why not join the OutdoorLads team on this third party Sportive event around the rolling hills of Wiltshire.
You will need to sign up through https://www.ukcyclingevents.co.uk/events/wiltshire-wildcat-sportive/ and select whatever distance takes your fancy, though I expect most of us will be completing the 82 mile "Epic" cycle. Registration costs £40.
Please note as a third party event there will be no formal OutdoorLads event leader shepherding you along. Though not a race, the event is timed and Will the organiser is slightly competitive though also likes taking in the view. If you are an experienced road cyclist you should be fine. The hope is we will be of a similar pace so we can chit chat during the cycle.
Please do wear your OutdoorLads branded kit if you have it. A new summer jersey kit order will be starting soon, ideal for this sort of event. If you sign up for this event you'll get updates from us on how to order.
