Coast and Clay Sportive 2023

Coast and Clay Sportive 2023

The Coast and Clay Sportive

The Coast and Clay Sportive is back – register NOW for 2023!

Cornwall Hospice Care is delighted to open the Coast and Clay Sportive for your entry.

**Please note change of date from July to June for 2023**

img

Join us in June 2023 as we bring you a day in the saddle to remember.

Best of all, there is something for everybody, from the complete beginner and family friendly routes to the seriously tough 104 mile top distance, with 4 superb routes to choose from – find your preferred challenge today:

(Click on the blue links below to see the full routes, which are downloadable to various devices.)

EXTREME – 104 MILES

EPIC – 71 MILES

CHALLENGE – 44 MILES

INSPIRE – 17 MILES

All the routes are designed to provide enjoyable and safe cycling in spectacular scenery. We start and finish at the magnificent Prideaux Place, Padstow, Cornwall, PL28 8RP.

En route, you will experience the coastline and cliffs of the north coast, beautiful country lanes of mid Cornwall, and on the longer routes you’ll pass through the unique backdrop of the Clay Country and the calmer and gentler south coast, before winding your way back through the Cornish countryside where spectacular views and beaches lead to the finish. The route will be well signposted, with strategically placed marshals, well-stocked feed stations and a few hills! All finishers will be awarded a medal and there will be food and drink at the finish.

What is a sportive?

A sportive is not a race, but they are a great way to get into organised cycling events, giving you the chance to complete a fully signed and supported ride in a relaxed environment. Think of it as the marathon of the cycling world (or a fun run if the word ‘marathon’ brings you out in a cold sweat).

Riding a sportive is a superb way to explore a new area on your bike, in the knowledge that you are fully supported by event staff and surrounded by other enthusiastic participants.

Which route?

The Extreme and Epic routes are aimed at experienced cyclists who want a serious test of fitness, endurance and stamina. With over 8,000ft of hills for the 104m riders, and 6,000ft for the 71m riders, you will take on the thrills (and sometimes pain) of cycling some tough Cornish climbs, while enjoying the beautiful countryside as well as the rugged coastline.

The Challenge route is aimed at intermediate riders who want to go beyond their normal ability by taking in some serious hills (3,600ft) as a test of their cycling proficiency.

The Inspire route is for cyclists young or old, beginners or the experienced, who want to take their cycling ambitions beyond the Camel Trail or the commute to work.

View the route maps below by clicking on the blue links:

EXTREME – 104 MILES

EPIC – 71 MILES

CHALLENGE – 44 MILES

INSPIRE – 17 MILES

What's included?
  • Fully signed course routes
  • Chip-timed ride
  • Mechanical support on hand to keep you pedalling
  • Marshals at key route points to keep you on the right road
  • Sweeper van ensuring all participants return safely
  • Free food, water and energy drinks at feed stations along the route
  • Medals for all finishers
Sponsorship:

For all riders, sponsorship is optional. But we do encourage you to raise some sponsorship, no matter how much or how little, to help keep our beds open.  If you are unable to raise sponsorship at this time, please consider making a donation when you register.

Every £20 you raise will fund one hour of nursing care in our hospices. In 2020 your efforts helped us keep open our beds at St Julia’s and Mount Edgcumbe Hospices, beds that were and remain so needed. In 2021 & 2022 your support sustained your local adult hospices, and collectively you funded more than 800 hours of nursing care!  In 2023 let’s see if we can help our hospices thrive even further! The registration fee covers the costs of this event, but by raising sponsorship you will enable us to care for more terminally ill people in Cornwall.  Plus, everyone who raises over £250 will receive one of our Cornwall Hospice Care Cycling Jerseys!

What happens next?
  1. Register today by clicking on the above dark pink button. We will need to ask you for your next of kin and phone details at the checkout for your health and safety (please don’t put someone who is also riding the event though).
  2. You will receive a confirmation email from our booking platform Charity Checkout letting you know that your registration was successful.  There will also be details on how you can purchase a Cornwall Hospice Care Cycling Jersey.
  3. If you purchase a Cycling Jersey this will be mailed to you promptly.
  4. Please consider setting up a JustGiving sponsorship page. Please do so if you can – just £20 raised makes a huge difference to the care we offer.  You could even run a sweepstake on your finish time or hold a cake sale beforehand to raise money – speak to our Fundraising team about ideas!
  5. Share your fundraising page with your friends and family to raise sponsorship for Cornwall Hospice Care.
  6. Your final instructions will be sent a week before the event by email. Please look out for these and check junk folders regularly!
  7. Any fundraising support you need – we will be on hand to help.
  8. Finally, enjoy the sportive!

If you have a mechanical problem, please wait at the roadside and call event support on 07539 152560.  There will also be a sweeper van following the last rider.  Pumps and inner tubes will be available at the feed stations on the route.

Abandoning the ride, what do I do?

If you cannot complete the ride please tell a Marshal at a check point or phone 07539 152560.  Do NOT go home without telling someone or we will assume you are injured and have the emergency services out looking for you.  You will have to pay any costs incurred.

Is there a cut off time?

5PM on event day is the cut off time.

At this point, the Event HQ at Prideaux Place will begin pack-down and our sweepers will look to engage with all riders on the course to determine their condition and expected return.

Rest assured we will not leave you unattended, but if you remain out on the course, any additional costs incurred in getting you back safely you will have to pay for.


There will be more tourists on our roads this summer than usual, how will this be managed?

The event is almost entirely on the open roads, however we stay off the major routes in and out of primary tourist destinations where we can.  When we come back through north of Newquay to head up the coastline back towards Padstow, most groups of cyclists will long be split, true also for Pentewan Road in St Austell.  We will also be releasing people in waves to ensure minimal traffic and the early start will ease this too.

The route will be well signed and this will include signs for motorists for awareness that there is an event on and to exercise caution. There are a handful of tricky junctions and these will be marshalled to keep participants and members of the public safe.


Cancellations and transfers

Registrations are strictly personal, firm and binding and fees shall not be refunded for any reason.

If you are unable to take part please let us know as soon as possible by calling 01726 66868 (option 3).  You may defer your place to the following year or transfer your place to another cyclist.  Please note deferrals and transfers will be accepted up to Monday 19th July 2023 at Midday.


Event Cancellation Refund Policy

Mont-Saint-Michel Cycle 2023

Mont-Saint-Michel Cycle 2023

Are you up for an extraordinary adventure? Join us on our fully supported and bespoke cycle from Cornwall to Mont-Saint-Michel, France and enjoy the unique opportunity to fund your local adult hospice nurses.

A truly amazing experience; you’ll make lifelong friends, go beyond what you thought you could do, but most of all make unforgettable memories.

Our Mont-Saint-Michel Cycle is an incredible cycling challenge and will be the third bespoke overseas cycle for our charity.

You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 278 miles from Cornwall. Your journey begins on the gorgeous Roseland Heritage Coast, where once underway you will snake along the coast, via Mount Edgcumbe Hospice to Plymouth to catch the overnight Ferry. The next morning our French adventure begins as we cycle 3 days through quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns all whilst hugging the coastline and enjoying the views of gorgeous sandy beaches.

On Day 4 the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site Mont-Saint-Michel will grow on the horizon before welcoming you to your finale and across the finish line. The pride, comradery and sense of achievement will make all the days in the saddle worth it as you soak in your magnificent achievement.

Key Points

Challenge duration – 5 days
Days in the saddle – 4 days
Distance – 278 miles (approx.)
Difficulty – Moderate. A good level of fitness is required for this challenge. You will need to train, however remember that although the distances are larger, you have all day to do it!
Accommodation – Overnight ferry and hotels (twin room occupancy)

Entry Options

Fundraising Option: Registration Fee £99 (non-refundable) + Minimum Sponsorship £1,600

This option means the cost of your challenge is met through raising a minimum sponsorship. The cost of this challenge is £850 per cyclist, so you will raise £850 to fund our care, and anything over the minimum target helps to fund our nurses!

We expect that 80% of your minimum sponsorship (£1,280) is received by the 24th July 2023 (10 weeks prior to departure). We ask for this, as it is at this point we pay final balances for accommodation.

Own Target Option: Registration Fee £99 (non-refundable) + Self Funding £800 + Own Fundraising Target

This option means you can choose how much you wish to fundraise, by paying for the cost of your challenge yourself. This way, you are in control of your target.

On the 10th July 2023 (12 weeks before departure), you will receive an invoice to pay the £800 challenge. There is also the option to setup a Direct Debit from the point of booking until this date if you wish to make monthly payments (please discuss this with one of our Team prior to booking).

Your challenge balance must be paid in full by the 24th July 2023, otherwise your place may be at risk.

5 Day Itinerary

Day 1 – Registration for cycle will be early morning in St Mawes before departure at 7:30AM, travelling up through the Roseland, into Mount Edgcumbe Hospice and along into Plymouth. Distance – 66 Miles / 5,659ft elevation gain.

Route Map Day 1 – St Mawes to Plymouth.

Day 2 – Departing from the overnight ferry out of Roscoff, you start to travel East through Morlaix, again hugging the coastline, before arrival in Guingamp. Distance – 75 miles / 4,364ft elevation gain.

Route Map Day 2 – Roscoff to Guingamp.

Day 3 – You will cycle from Guingamp, around Saint-Brieuc and via harbour villages. You then begin to head inland, passing the ruins of Château de la Hunaudaye and then on to finish in the medieval town of Dinan. Distance – 76 miles / 4,150ft elevation gain.

Route Map Day 3 – Guingamp to Dinan.

Day 4 – Your final day in the saddle! You head North, picking up the coastline with your first glimpse of our finish. After lunch, just a handful of miles remain until the finish at the iconic Mont-Saint-Michel. Here, your cycle ends and we enjoy our celebratory meal together. Distance – 61 miles / 2,752ft elevation gain.

Route Map Day 4 – Dinan to Mont-Saint-Michel.

Day 5 – You have a free morning to visit the Mont, before boarding the coach back to Roscoff. Here you board the ferry as a foot passenger, with your bike stored safely in a Cornwall Hospice Care van. Upon arrival back in Plymouth, you will again transfer by coach back to Cornwall and arrival at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice for late evening.

Please note – exact distances and elevation gains may adjust marginally from the above specific detail and the itinerary is subject to change as required.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fit do I need to be?

Some training is certainly required and although the distances are large, remember, all you are doing across the whole day is cycling. Typically we have an early morning start, 8am for example, and ride until mid afternoon. This is broken up with a morning and afternoon break and a decent lunch break.

People tend to group with others of similar speeds and no one is left behind. It’s not a race and all abilities are encouraged.


Will there be a training plan?

Yes, we will work with you to understand your fitness and will provide a training plan to match your current ability.

Is there an age limit to take part?

All Participants must be aged 18 or over by the 1st October 2023.

Is there an option to have my own room?

Yes! You can upgrade to a single occupancy for £295 (this is payable by the individual and cannot be covered under your fundraising). Contact us on the details above and we can process this payment with you. Please be aware, requests past 24th July 2023 (10 weeks prior to departure), may not be able to be catered for.

What is the food like?

Typically breakfast is your usual hotel cuisine, eggs, toast, pastries etc. Lunch is a local restaurant en route and usually hearty and carb dense for maximum energy. The evening meal is much the same.

The water stops have sweets, cereal bars and high energy bars available too.


How will the course be marked?

Each rider is offered a GPS device, which is pre-programmed with the route. It uses visual and audio cues to instruct you. These are highly accurate and easy to use.

These are offered to each rider with no damage deposit, Cornwall Hospice Care covers this, however if a riders looses or breaks theirs, they will be required to pay for it so our charity is not charged.


What support is there en-route?

There are three vehicles that make up our support team:

x1 Support Car – First Aid cover and basic bike mechanical support. The car is floating to help with any issue that may arise.

x2 Support Vans, carrying you day and overnight bag. The vans run the logistics of the breaks and lunch stops.


What bicycles are allowed?

Road bikes are the most suitable bikes, although , hybrid bikes or mountain bikes can be used. We do advise that the longer distances will be more challenging on a mountain bike.

Electric bikes are also welcome, although any form of e-bike with a twist and go style throttle is not permitted. If using an electric bike, it will be your responsibility to ensure the battery is charged.


Can I raise more than the minimum sponsorship?

Yes! Any sponsorship above the minimum will fund the essential work of our charity.

Can I raise money as a team?

Yes, for those who are concerned about raising the minimum sponsorship we are happy to have a team share the target. For each person, the team’s sponsorship minimum will grow by £1,600 to cover their place and the care we are asking them to fund i.e. two riders together will need to raise £3,200 and three riders £4,800.

As a team if one person raises £3,000 and the other x2 team member £900, they still meet the target.

If you wish to enter a team please advise us on our contact details above, before or shortly after registering.


What fundraising support is there beforehand?

We will provide all Participants with a Fundraising Pack. We can also provide at your request collection buckets, tins, banners, etc. to support your efforts. You will also received a letter of authority to help if approaching businesses for prizes for a raffle for example.

In your Fundraising Pack we will also have information on online sponsorship pages and can offer advice on raffles, matched funding etc.

Essentially, if you need us, we can help with ideas to make your fundraising a success.


Is this not a costly event?

This challenge does have a higher cost base than other events we do, however all the logistics of the event are covered including most of your meals and all en-route travel and accommodation – please see the ‘Itinerary’ download for exact information.

We know from experience that when we cover these logistical costs and ask people to raise more as a result, participants are more successful and raise more funds towards are care.

Each rider, when meeting the minimum sponsorship only, will fund over a week’s worth of nursing care. You can see how this will build with 30 cyclists…. and of course, you can raise more!
