Course

The 2019 South West Property Sportive offers 3 different courses. 

The 160km long CENTURY Sportive, the 100km long DISTANCE Sportive and the 70km long CLASSIC Sportive.

All three courses start and finish at the Somerdale Pavilion in Keynsham. However, to give riders on the CENTURY Sportive the opportunity to refresh after their first 60km and potentially enjoy the 2nd part of their ride with friends and colleagues (who have opted for the 100km or 70km option), we bring the course back to the Somerdale Pavilion before they head out again to complete their ride.

So only the CENTURY Sportive goes onto the Cotswold loop (see underneath) before coming back to the Somerdale Pavilion and then heading out onto the Mendip loop (please see below). The other two distances go straight onto the Mendip loop.

  • The Cotswold loop is marked with markers/signs showing BLACK arrows on a RED background.
  • The Cotswold loop finishes and the Mendip loop starts ONLY at/from the Somerdale Pavilion – you have to come to the start/finish before heading out again. 
  • Feed station is at 60km (37miles) at the Somerdale Pavilion, Keynsham.
  • CENTURY Sportive (160km) riders have to be back at the Somerdale Pavilion to start the 2nd loop before 12 noon otherwise we will divert you onto the shorter course.
