Check out the Wattbike No Excuses Sportive Series

It's an ongong issue. "entries to events are to expensive". Ok, so how about an event that if you do turn up and take get 100% of your entry fee back after the event?

And if you don't? 90% of your entry fee is given to charity. Read on...

The Wattbike No Excuses Sportive Series goes live TODAY (17/11/2016). This is a unique series of sportives because the majority of riders ride for absolutely free.

The series consists of three sportive events in Cambridge, Nottingham and Scotland and the concept is simple.

Sunday 26th February: Cambridge | Peterborough Show Ground 

Sunday 5th March: Nottingham | Southwell Racecourse 

Sunday 26th March: Scotland | Falkirk Football Club 

UK Cycling Events give away free spaces on these rides. All you need to do is book, turn up and ride. If you do they give 100% of your entry fee back to you after the event. If you do not turn up…for whatever the reasons (It is called ‘NO EXCUSES’) they will give 90% of your entry fee to a chosen charity (the chosen charity will announced soon).

If you want to secure your spot, because there are limited spaces, but you are still unsure whether you will be able to make it, there’s a half price option: ‘half an excuse’, which costs just £17.50. However there are no refunds given on these tickets.

Natalie Hicks, head of UK cycling Events, said "These will be hugely popular sell out events designed to support great causes and encourage riders back on their bikes after the winter season."

All three events will have epic and standard route options, are extremely well signed and will be fully supported with mechanics, medics and marshals, as well as fully stocked feed stations and finisher medals.

Wattbike Director, Rich Baker, said: "An early-season sportive is great way to build strength and endurance for the 2017 season, but the tricky bit is getting prepared. Structured training on the Wattbike throughout winter will really give you that edge.

"Performance matters to us, and we want riders to continue to improve, whatever their standard. Using the Wattbike, our training plans and sessions, we can help you ride faster during the Wattbike No Excuses Series and throughout 2017."

Visit the UK Cycling Events website to book your tickets. These events will sell out fast.
