I've just signed up for the Black Rat sportive, the 181km route. So that's the first of the year booked. I'm just waiting for Chase the Sun registration to open, and that will be number 2, although I don't think it really counts as a sportive, and Great Weston Ride will round out my summer. I don't really like paying for rides, but Black Rat and Great Weston are fairly inexpensive, and both are well supported and worth the money. Plus who doesn't love a BBQ (great weston) and a pasty and cider (black rat) at the end of a long ride?
