Enigma 100K Colossus 100 M
Our sportive is named in honour of the legendary home of the codebreakers; Bletchley Park - the National Codes and Cipher Centre
You have a choice of two distances:
• Enigma Sportive of 100km with around 2,800 feet of climbing
• Colossus Sportive of 100 miles with around 4,500 feet of climbing
Both distances feature an outstanding circular route through the country lanes surrounding Milton Keynes and Bletchley taking in the two counties of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. The 100 mile route will have two feed stations, you will visit the one at Salford twice. The 100km route will visit the Salford feed once.
Prince George Pub, Portishead Drive, Tattenhoe, Milton Keynes, MK4 3FA
The venue has plenty of parking.
Registration will be open at 8am.
Please go to the desk that matches your surname alphabetically, you will be given an envelope which will contain your timing chip which sticks to the left side of your cycle helmet and does not need returning after the event, and contact details if you have any problems on the route.
We have first aid available and if you have any issues on route please call any of these numbers (07717 203 769 / 0750 373 9191) and we will get someone to you ASAP.
Both events will start at 9am, please do start as early as possible especially if you think you may take sometime to complete the route. Please bear in mind that the extra loop for the 100 mile will CLOSE at 12:00. If you have not made this point by then you will be diverted onto the 100k route.
We will have someone taking pictures at the end of the route, these will be uploaded to Facebook and we may have picture or video on route, so makesure you smile :-)
We will have inner tubes, tyres, puncture repair kits and pumps available at the start, and feed station. If you have a mechanical on route please call us on one of these numbers: (07717 203 769 / 0750 373 9191)
We will have plenty of savory and sweet foods for you to eat on route. Thats not to say a full blown dinner, but enough food to keep you topped up or a break from the minging health bars that everyone eats these days!! Malt loaf, flapjack, bannanas, etc and also tea, coffee and plenty of good old fashioned water.
If you are doing the 100 k route you will have a feed station at Salford village, if you are doing the 100 mile route you will have two chances to get food.
Aailable at the start, feed point and Finish
We are planning to time the climb at Great Brickhill, this will be timed twice if you are doing the 100 mile. We also looking at videoing this climb, so make sure while you are in pain that you save yourself enough energy to smile!!
There plenty of good vantage points on the route, but I can suggest the climb at Great Brickhill and the pub the Red Lion. The other option (another great pub) is at the feed stops at Salford and the fantastic Swan with fantastic food and fine beers. Afterwards why not visit the new Prince George Pub and say hello to our hosts.
