Wheelbase Spring Classic

Due the the continuation of restrictions we have made the decision to cancel the Octobers sportive. The event will run on the 28th March 2021 and we look forward to sharing the event with you then.

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus we have rescheduled the event to Sunday October the 18th. Those already entered will have the option of a transfer to the Oct date or to 2021 (28th March 2021)

Two great routes to choose from which take you thought scenic roads with beautiful views of Howgills, Dent and Barbon. Both routes head generally south eastwards through Cumbria taking some very quiet valleys that you may be unaware of (unless you’ve done this sportive before of course!) as well as a few tasty climbs and some seriously quick descents.

The timed hill climb of the day takes you up Shacklabank. A tricky little climb which will see the fastest male / female crowned King / Queen of the mountain with a jersey from Wheelbase too.

Choose the long route, head further afield but get a bonus refreshments stop at Sedbergh Peoples Hall before heading back to Staveley for tea, cake and time to drool over the latest carbon fibre beauties in the shop!
