L2P places, Severn Bridge Sportive, Deloitte RAB…….

Hi all,

Following another successful Severn Bridge Sportive and Family Cycling day held at Castle Combe last Sunday we’re busy finalising preparations for the 5th Deloitte “Ride across Britain” beginning this year in Land’s End a week from tomorrow……. We’re hoping for that area of high pressure to build and give us warm dry conditions and a southerly wind……!!

Conditions for the Severn Bridge event were great and a large number of riders made the most of the weather on both sportive routes that crossed the Bridge and also the opportunity to ride around the famous Castle Combe motor racing circuit.

ACC have a large number of events left to help organise through the autumn such as:

Nelsons Ride – Sept 20th

Meek’s Feats – Sept 28th – a new sportive starting and finishing in Yate taking in the South West Cotswolds in memory of Ian Meek and supported by Dr Dawn Harper of ITV 4′s “Embarrassing Bodies” -

Add in a couple of presitigious corporate events and a couple of British Heart Foundation rides (Manchester to Blackpool and London Bath)

Amazingly the 2015 calendar is already filling up fast with Lanzarote and Mallorca camps in January and March respectively along with next years Deloitte “Ride across Britain”, Help 4 Heroes rides, Cycle Wiltshire among many other events already announcing dates.

We are pleased to pass on the following information regarding an opportunity to take part in the famous HotChillee L2P event and for a great cause:

London Paris 2015:

HelpingRhinos (Patron, Phil Liggett), registered charity partners with HotChillee, organisers of the prestigious LONDON-PARIS 2015 3-day cycle ride, have places for the June 2015 event (25th – 28th June 2015).  How about taking part – as a team of 4, or individually?  Places are limited, and the deadline to enter is tight.  So take a look at our website:  to see how you could be one of the participants and help to save the rhino from extinction. This event mimics a full-on stage Race, departing from London’s Hampton Court, (2012 Olympic Time Trial venue), and finishing under the Eiffel Tower, in the heart of Paris.

Have a great weekend cycling wherever you are in the world……

Severn Bridge Sportive and family fun day Castle Combe

After a wet and soggy ride in the 2nd “Ride London” event last weekend we’ve been busy completing the final route write ups for the forth coming Deloitte “Ride across Britain” and we’re currently packing the vans in order to help run this weekends Blenheim Sportive.

Next weekend see’s our own Severn Bridge Sportive now in it’s 5th year and accompanying family fun day at the Castle Combe motor racing circuit. The event is proud to have as a charity partner “Help for Heroes” and great support from Chain Reaction Cycles and High5 sports nutrition.

Entries are coming in thick and fast for what is a great friendly ride with all the usual ACC high standard of event delivery.

The routes take in the crossing of the iconic Severn Bridge prior to a stop at the Bulwark community centre before the 100 mile route takes in the famous Wentwood climb prior to a great descent into Usk and then the climb of Star Hill prior to another magnificent descent back to the same feed station in Bulwark. Both routes then have the Hawkesbury Upton climb before returning to the finish at the motor racing circuit to join the rest of the family riding laps of the circuit.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Severn Bridge Sportive and Family Cycling Day

We’ve had a very busy month supporting many events across the country. These include both Help for Heroes and Bike Bath. Plus, we’ve ridden the first few stages of the Tour route in Yorkshire – twice!

Right now, we are turning our attention to finalising details for the Severn Bridge Sportive on the 24th of August. This year the Sportive runs in conjunction with a Family Cycling Day at North Wiltshire’s Castle Combe Circuit.

We are pleased to announce that our sponsor for this year is Chain Reaction Cycles with our Charity Partner being Help for Heroes.

Following much positive feedback, we’ve decided to keep the routes exactly as last year for both the 100k and 100 mile options for the Sportive.

Each route will be comprehensively signed, with well stocked feed stations, motorcycle outrider support and First Aid Cover from MediBikes.

Mechanical support will be provided on the day both at the start and at the shared feed station and there will also be a support car out on the road.

The Family Cycling Day will include a circuit lap challenge and also British Cycling Go-Ride agility skills for all ages – just turn up on the day and give it a go!

Places for the Sportive are disappearing fast so visit to sign on!
