What's different about this flat 100 mile sportive?
Pace will feature two Speeds Feeds where you can ride in and out to grab pre-filled Struggle water bottles and pocket your nutrition in no time. Don't worry, toilets will be available for natural breaks.
Recycling Bottle Drop
Load your bike with old water bottles and when you discard them at the feeds we'll recycle them while you ride away with new bottles.

Club mates, teams or friends of 6 - 10 riders of the same pace pen can take advantage of an individual start funnel allowing them to ride as a group.
All riders will receive an awesome Struggle medal as a memento.

This event is not a race, but a personal challenge. It is run on open public roads. You are expected to obey the Highway Code and be safe and courteous of other road users. Riders are set of in small safe groups after a compulsory safety briefing. If you are riding in a group you should ride no more two abreast when safe to do so and single out on narrow roads. You are responsible for deciding when it is safe to cross traffic, overtake riders, moderate your speed and decision make.
