Looking back to our very first sportive

Has it really been 6 years?

The very first RideStaffs sportive took place way back in 2013. It was a different time, Lance still had 7 yellow jerseys in the wardrobe, British Riders winning the Tour de France was a new thing still and there were no such things as a gravel bikes.

Looking back, we’ve learned lots about route planning in that time, but there’s still lots of fun elements on this one that bears repeating. So we’ve amended the start finish to be at Milford (our original was in Shugborough) but otherwise left it unchanged. Hope you enjoy, you can get the route for your GPX device via RideWithGPS, just use the link on the embed below!
