Welcome to the Brewood Cycle Challenge Sportive
The Brewood Cycle Challenge is a British Cycling Registered Sportive that takes place one week and a day before Fathers Day each year.
The date for the 6th Brewood Cycle Challenge is:
Saturday 13th June 2015
The event has two fully-signposted circular routes, of approximately 50K (30 miles) and 100K (60 miles), starting and finishing in the quiet South Staffordshire village of Brewood.
The routes are all principally designed to guide cyclists along the quieter country lanes of the counties of Staffordshire, Shropshire and, sometimes, the West Midlands to discover interesting villages, hamlets and vistas whilst, of course, experiencing the occasional delights of challenging up-slopes (we don’t call them hills!) and invigorating descents.

St. Dominic’s school, the event HQ, are offering childcare arrangements for those cyclists who would like to ride the Brewood Cycle Challenge but have other childminding responsibilities on the day. The creche facility is being organised by the school and so any riders who wishes to take advantage of this facility needs to book their child/children
We are very proud to announce that Premier Foods, the UK’s largest food producer, are donating all of the feed station cakes for this years event absolutely free! This will help to lower our costs and so more of the proceeds will go towards the Scout Group’s new hut!
We are very pleased to announce that the “Chase Jazzmen” will be adding to the party spirit by welcoming home the riders this year with their own brand of trad and swing jazz!

Mike A… Fantastic event. Many thanks to all the volunteers for the hot coffees that saw me through the worst of the weather (8 June 2014 – FB)
Mick C… My first Sportive and the longest ride I have ever done! It certainly was a Challenge, and I agree with others that this must be a Cat 3 course. Only real downside was it took me as long to clean my bike this morning as it took to get it filthy yesterday! Loved the village fete atmosphere at the end and the friendly folk at the feed stations and along the route… (8 June 2014 – FB)

Mikaela N… G… Loved it, the weather held out in the most part, and the rain in the middle was a refreshing shower to cool us down after the hills! (8 June 2014 – FB)
Adam S… I should like to take this opportunity to pass on my praise and thanks for an excellently run event on Saturday- the BCC as I shall now know it. Please pass on my thanks also to the legion of volunteers, the institutes of Women, the sign placers and for the additional supporters. I now know why it’s called a challenge ride and will do a little more preparation next year(!) I hope the scouts benefit greatly from it… (10 June 2015 – email)
