Bucks Off Road Sportive - Finishing Times and Photos Available!!

13th May 2018

Entry on line available for 2018 here

Well we are nearly there with the 3 routes for this years 20th anniversary Bucks Off Road Sportive, the distances this year are a choice of 3 routes, approx 40,80 and 120KMs long, with 2 feed stations for the longer routes and 1 for the shorter route as always stocked up with our lovely home made cakes,  fruit and energy drink.

As it is our 20th anniversary we hope to see all our past entrants and look forward to a big entry and entries have been trickling on a regular basis as the event date nears. Hopefully good weather will be the order of the day and the recent better weather has assisted in drying up some of the trails and hopefully on event date we will be complaining of dust not mud!

Links to the GPX routes will be sent to all pre entered riders the week prior to the event and will also be posted up on this site.

The route will also be marked.

As always all types of bikes are welcome, the weapon of choice for most are hard tail MTBs , but amongst the field there are always a number of cyclo cross bikes, gravel bikes and full suspensions cycles and even a tandem last year.

We do not mind what bike you ride as long as you respect the fact that other users will be using the trails and give walkers and horse riders a wide berth, slowing down when passing and indicating your presence prior to passing.

This year our chosen charity to which we donate from the profits of the event is the Frimley Health Trust  which provides support to Wexham Park Hospital which we has some affinity to, as this is the local hospital to our cross country race venue of Black Park and whilst luckily serious injuries have been rare over the 12 years of race promotion  they have provided assistance to a couple of our riders who have met with misfortune.

All finishers will be given an event memento and rewarded with a free pint or soft drink  returning to the HQ where tea and light refreshments will be available.

So hopefully see you on the day or before at one of the other West Drayton promotions.

There are some excellent photos posted by photograper Frankie Snell on Flickr at the following location.
