No Excuses Cambridgeshire Sportive

Saturday 24th February 2018 - East of England Showground, Oundle Road, Alwalton, Peterborough, PE2 6SE

UPDATE - 21 Feb 2018: Please be aware that we have moved the start times for this event back by 1 hour due to the low temperatures forecasted for the early morning. The venue will now open at 8:00 am and registration opens at 8:15 am. New start times can be found below and in the updated pre-event information pack.


You’ll have no excuses for not giving your all in this early-season sportive, as the No Excuses Cambridgeshire ride will allow you to execute your winter training regime on a lightly undulating course, for free!

That's right. Everyone who enters either the £40 Epic or Standard routes and turns up on the day will receive a full refund after the event. For those who enter and don't turn up, that money gets donated to charity. If you do ride the event and would rather your entry fee go to a good cause, feel free to let us know.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed a "Half an Excuse" entry option as well. This price tier is for those who want to secure a place in this sell-out event, but are unsure if they will make it on the day. This entry fee will not be refunded regardless if you turn up on the day or not but at least it's only half the normal fee, so no shows won't lose out as much. Those who do turn up having entered the Half an Excuse routes get to ride an awesome event for half the price. Terms and conditions can be found below.

Times and 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 our results page. 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.
