Tommy Godwin Challenge 2017
The Tommy Godwin Challenge was created in 2013 by Sarah and Mike Adams to honour the cycling icon and 1948 Olympic medalist, Tommy Godwin and to build on the legacy of London 2012, of which he was a proud Ambassador. It is run by a group of dedicated volunteers .
All the profits will go towards the running costs of the Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull, where Tommy spent his last few days.
There are three routes, more challenging 100km and 70km routes, each with a refreshment stop and chip timing which start at 09:30 and a 30km route for families and the less experienced cyclists , starting at 10:30. All routes will be well signed and route cards and GPX files can be downloaded.
With only a couple of climbs, it’s the sportive is an ideal end of season event both for the experienced rider and those looking for their first sportive after a summer of training.
All finishers will receive medals.
As founders of the Red Kite Belles on Bikes we are especially keen to encourage women to enter the event.
Top Gunn Cycles will be at the start to provide assistance to anyone requiring it and a track pump will be available at the refreshment stop at Great Alne Village Hall.
Massage therapy will be available at the finish from Clair Andrews of Sportstherapyclair.co.uk and Charles Ward Sports & Laryngeal Manual Therapy for a small charge, which will be donated to the hospice.
