Great South West SportiveSep 16, 2019
What is the Great South West Sportive?
This years Sportive saw thousands of cyclists enjoy beautiful scenery, twisting descents and challenging climbs through iconic countryside and moorland. It was the first ever cycling event to cross the Tamar Bridge!
This cross county sportive catered for all, with fully supported and signed routes, the event was designed and planned by cyclists for cyclists.
So, what did people say about the event?
As sponsors, we were involved throughout the event and on the day itself, and we even had a Nash & Co team of cyclists enter from our staff, together with a group from the Nash & Co Cycle Network. Everyone was suitably impressed with the day:
Everyone taking part was incredibly friendly and there was a real sense of team spirit. Pork Hill was particularly challenging and the feed station at the top was a very welcome sight!
The route was really well signposted and easy to follow and the support from the organisers and volunteers was fantastic.Alex Meyer, Nash & Co Solicitors
“The whole event went really well. As sponsors, we are delighted – the feedback from the cyclists taking part was phenomenal – some saying it was the best Sportive they have ever done, others asking when details of next year will be released, because they want to come back again and bring friends with them! We had the best weather, though it was a little hot in the afternoon. The route was tough, but those taking part said they absolutely loved it. I spoke to someone who was getting off their bike – they were over the moon – and he was about to jump in his car and drive 4 hours back home, north of Birmingham – but said he would definitely be back. The organisers have done a great job, and we can’t wait to be involved again next year.”Dave Briggs, Nash & Co Solicitors Marketing Manager
A Big Thank You!
We are so proud to be the main sponsors of such a fantastic event. But this event could not have gone ahead without all the amazing staff, sponsors, volunteers and cyclists that took part and helped the event take off.
