6TH SEPTEMBER 2020
We're on for the MAD SUMMER HARE!
After the cancellation on so many events over the last 3 months, including our own Mad March Hare, we are very pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the SAFE EVENT SCHEME to enable us to deliver a safe event with all the necessary provisions in place to keep all our riders, staff and visitors safe.
The event will follow the same format as previous years, however, there will be a limited capacity so make sure you book your entry NOW.
Extra provisions will be put in place at HQ and at feed stations to ensure relevant government guidelines are adhered to, whatever they may be at the time of the event.
As some of you know we had planned extra rides, onsite entertainment and camping this year. This is currently still under review and we will announce more news when we can.
Check out the www.safeeventscheme.com website for more info on how we are preparing to bring events back!
A more comprehensive plan of all precautions put in place to keep you safe will be available closer to the event to keep info up to date and relevant.
Any questions, as always you can email me at or join the conversation over on Facebook and join the
Stay safe, The Mad Hare
CELEBRATE YOUR SUMMER LEGS
The iconic Mad Summer Hare Sportive returns on September 6th 2020 at the fabulous Umberslade Farm Park.
Being so late in the Summer season your legs and lungs should be at their strongest so we've set a challenge to test both your physical and mental strength - 1, 2, 3 or 4 hill climbs - you choose how many.
Beware though, these aren't just any hills, they're iconic Cotswold hill climbs that have been tormenting cyclists for decades. Pushing onto the next one is not easy but there's a different shiny medal if you do.
HOW MANY CLIMBS WILL YOU CONQUER?
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
One of the best sportives I've done - well organised, excellent signage, really good route
Amazing route, well organised and great feed stations to keep us going. The volunteers were great cheering us up the climbs and encouraging everyone
A gorgeous ride, plenty of food, a great atmosphere - what more could you ask for?
"....an ideal event for a late summer ride"
