I'm pleased to announce the third Polocini event of 2011 following on from the successful Winter Sprinter and Kegs and Legs sportives. Our events are among the top rated on cyclosport.org.
We have two rolling routes designed with the usual inimitable Polocini flair. And even some cobbles. We don't aim for a set distance of say 100miles, the route is designed to flow properly.
51 Miles - This route takes in some stunning scenery. But doesn't contain the tough climbs of the longer route.
73/77 Miles - The longer route has a timed King o'the hill climb up Shibden Wall as featured in the book 100 Greatest Cycling climbs. The route also has the option to tackle Halifax Lane which is also featured in 100 Climbs. This is a challenging route which also takes in Cragg Vale which is the longest continuous gradient in England.
There is a fixed entry price of £20 in accordance with our Polocini Standard along with showers, changing facilities and all the other features that have become a fixture at our events. Not to mention Timing, photos, route maps, motorcycle outrider, sag wagon and of course cake and Haribo.
As usual all food and drink is included in the entry fee along with our CNP ProOption worth £18.50.
At Polocini we can be bold enough to state that we HAVE the best food at any sportive. At previous Polocini events we have had Viking porridge, Beef goulash with pasta,Tuscan meatballs & pasta, Channa & spiced couscous with mint yoghurt(v), Pasta with cream tomato sauce (v), Pig in a bun, bratwurst with spiced potatoes and chicken & chorizo jambalaya. Plus lots of goodies at our Feed Stations.
After the event we will be hoping to screen the days TDF stage.
There are no pointless goody bags. We are doing various prize draws for a bespoke bike fit, a full sportive outfit from ShuttVr, a month of cycling coaching and the chance for the winner and four friends to visit the CNP factory for a full tour and receive a nutrition seminar from Kerry Kayes and a bespoke nutrition package.
Over'tops Saturday 16th July 2011.
Oldham Rufc, Byrth Road. Oldham.
