It is not necessary to "register" for this event through Eventbrite - just with British Cycling as above.

The Cotswolds is well known for its beautiful countryside, gentle wolds, with river valleys, water meadows, beech woods and sleepy limestone villages. A mix of flatlands, rolling hills and sharp escarpments makes this area very special for bike rides such as the JOLE RIDER SPRING COTSWOLD SPORTIVE.
For this ride we have laid out 2 especially lovely routes. Our policy for routing your ride means that we positively avoid main roads where we can and identify quiet country lanes with spectacular views. We also prefer to vary our routes, so no 2 rides with us are the same!
The event is centred on The Bike Shed, a unique cycling emporium and JOLE RIDER's base. The Bike Shed is located just half a mile from the historic market town centre of Tetbury. Tetbury is known for its boutique shops, independent cafes and unique historic buildings. The town is rapidly becoming Gloucestershire's centre of cycling.
All riders who complete their chosen challenge and sign in at all Feed Stations will be entered into a prize draw to win a holiday in Mallorca.
There is also a Team prize for the Team which rides the combined most miles on the day.
