Cobbler Classic

Taking its name from the shoe-making history of its Northamptonshire surroundings, the Cobbler Classic Sportive will take you through some of the county’s best sights and cycling roads.

There are no major climbs on the course, leaving you to set your own stride on an undulating route that never levels out but in fact helps with the odd short downhill push every now and again. As you set off from just outside Brackley, you’ll pass through the sleepy villages of Shalstone and Chackmore, with quiet country lanes connecting them, before going over the top of Silverstone – the historic race track on your left on the way through.

Pushing on, you’ll dip into Towcester before it’s out into the open once more and after a stretch on a long and straight country lane, it’s time for the first feed stop of the day just outside Farthingstone. One or two short and sharp climbs may crop up around this part of the course, but climbs tend to be rolling, brief and joined up, making this an ideal all-weather event – ideal for the early season elements.

As you weave through rural roads that lead to villages such as Charwelton, Byfield and Culworth on the way back to the ride HQ, you can afford to empty the tank near the end as the gradient will stay the same throughout. After reaching Biddleston, you’re nearly there, and ready to claim a well-deserved finisher’s medal and PowerBar recovery product once over the line.

Key Information

Kids Ride For Free

We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.

Mates rates / Group buy

A 20% discount will be applied automatically at checkout when you enter 4 (four) or more riders into a single event. This offer does not apply to the Wattbike No Excuses events, the MBR Demo Day, Brewin Dolphin Velo Club tickets and the UKCE Le Classique French Sportive. Mates Rates do not apply to any Late Entry offers.

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the Pre entered registration points. Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

On the day entry

On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £5.00 per person surcharge. Payment can be made with cash or cheque. You can fill out an entry form when you arrive at the event. One entry form must be completed per person. Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
