Clive's Cumbrian Way - The Event
In 2010 the first Clives Cumbrian Way was ran by a group of members belonging to the Honiter Honister 92 road club. The aim was to create a two day ride that would put the emphasis on group riding, whilst covering one of Britain's largest and scenic counties. "We spotted a niche in the sportive market, to create a challenge ride that eliminates the competitive element, and focuses on the traditional reliability style system, where group selection will ensure everyone is equally happy with the pace, and yet challenged enough throughout the weekends 276miles."
If you enjoy sportives, sportive's Sunday club runs, and long summer days out on the bike with friends, this is the event for you. The camaraderie, friendliness and euphoric accomplishment is guaranteed. All you need to do is turn up and enjoy our small friendly and fully supported event. We are limited to 78 riders so don't ponder to long, see Event for more details.
All who were fortunate enough to have known Clive thought themselves privileged to have been in the presences of a really special person. As young men we all admired his physical strength, be it on the rugby field, tales of rock climbing or scrambling up a fell side, truly inspirational feats of strength and fitness. However nothing more inspirational was to mirror the courage and dignity he showed when at 39 he faced his toughest battle against Motor Neurones Disease.
Clive and his family were humbled at the prospect of our endeavours to raise a yearly amount for CFM's Cash For Kids in his honour, and not only make Clives Cubrian Way (CCWAY) a personal legacy, but see the Cumbrian Cycle Way (CC WAY) newly way marked and accessible to all who love cycling and love Cumbria.
