Re-Cycle & VC Revoluntion Colchester's annual


We are thrilled to announce that Chris Boardman, Re-Cycle's dedicated patron, will be attending our sportive event for the first time.

VCR Spring Sportive

with Special Guest Chris Boardman

This year we again will partner with VC Revolution Colchester to hold their Spring Cycle-Sportive!

We will be offering two challenging routes that take advantage of the great rural roads and allow riders to choose their challenge of either 64 miles or 42 mile routes. The HQ is at the Re-Cycle warehouse in Wormingford, just outside of Colchester, and we are extremely grateful that all proceeds of this event will be donated to Re-Cycle!

Join us post ride for a lunchtime talk by Chris Boardman, followed by an engaging Q&A session.
