Our events are open to all riders and kinds of bike! Events listed as MTB or CX are all open to any off road capable bike – MTB event courses are designed more for mountain bikes but are also rideable on gravel/CX bikes (care may be needed on some sections). CX/ Gravel events are also open to MTBs; mixed surfaces and longer / faster courses give you a great workout! We also welcome E-bikes on all of our open hill events events (which is everything except Battle in the Bowl). You can find specific bike information on individual event pages.

If you have any questions about any event, you can call us on 0118 988 6041.

Our websites are:



CX sportive, our events are run for the enjoyment of everyone, but we take our responsibilities as event organisers seriously. That means we have to set out terms and conditions, for entry to our events and use of our websites. Please read these terms and conditions in the next tabs. By using our sites or entering any of our events, you agree to abide by them.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Event Entry Details

We collect only the details that enter and submit via our online entry forms. These forms are provided and handled by our event entry provider, Rider HQ, and exported to our in house systems (offline), for purposes of administering the relevant event.

Mailing lists

For purposes of contacting you to inform you of our future events, we retain only your email address and name. No other data is held on our mailing lists. We do not share your data with any other third parties and do not acquire data from outside third parties for the purposes of mailing or promotion.


Comments are not usually enabled on our sites. When visitors leave comments on a site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to our websites, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

We rarely if ever use embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) Results pages on our websites this site may infrequently include embedded content from third party timing providers. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

We choose partners carefully for their correct handling of your data. However, these websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data with anyone. Simple as that.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

For mailing lists, we retain your data indefinitely, however, if you do not interact with our emails, you will be eventually moved to an inactive list so will hear from us less often. If you unsubscribe from our emails, your email address will be retained on our unsubscribe list to ensure that you do not receive future emails from us. We will not use your email for any other purpose.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive details of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.
