Due to poor road conditions and closures in three sections of the course we have decided to postpone the Three Shires Sportive until September 15th 2013.
Apologies to all those who have booked, we are disappointed to postpone the event at this late stage but the longstanding snow has damaged many of the roads the route follows and we believe it would be unsafe to run the event this weekend.
Starting from The University of Derby Dome on Devonshire Road you will cycle through Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire, taking in 12 Category Climbs including Winnats Pass, Goyt Valley and Gunn Hill.
Two feed stations will be provided at 50 km and 70 km, there will also be drinks available at the end of the ride.
Toilets are available at the start, main feed station and end of the route.
Entry to this Sportive is just £15 per rider for the short course and £20 per rider for the long course.
Registration will start at 7.30am and close at 8.30am. Riders will be able to start as soon as they have registered.
