Rotherham Wheelers Centenary Ride is scheduled for Sunday 17 May 2020 and is now only 15 weeks and 5 days away. The event is being run by Sportive HQ who are specialists in their field and was recently listed in Cycling Weekly. Entry to the event is via the Sportive HQ website ( and priced at £32.50 which includes a high quality commemorative medal, feed stations, mechanical support and first aid back – up.
In keeping with the centenary theme, Sportive HQ have put together two excellent courses of 100 miles and 67 miles (nominally 100km) both of which start and finish in Rotherham passing through the exquisite scenery of rural South Yorks and the Derbyshire Peak District. These will truly be rides to remember!
Members are reminded that the club has agreed to provide 20 people to assist with marshalling and other duties and to consider this commitment before applying to ride the event in a private capacity.
The good news is that those 20 volunteers will include 6 members who will ride the course in support of participants.
I am compiling a list of Wheelers members who are willing to volunteer to assist with this historic event. Please let me know (preferably by email) whether you wish to volunteer for a general role or as a support rider.
Please help to make this event a success by giving this information the widest circulation. 😀
