Velo Birmingham – SJ Cycling Take On the Challenge !


SJ Cycling is pleased to announce we will be taking part in the Birmingham Velo (100 mile and 45 mile) sportive on Sunday 21st June 2020. Birmingham Velo have confirmed they have limited places remaining for the 45-mile route; we are urging those members interested in participating to register as soon as possible (see below).

The 45-mile route will take riders from the heart of Birmingham (New Street), on a 45-mile journey through the West Midlands, finishing in Coventry City Centre. With just 400 meters of climbing over 45-miles, it really is an achievable cycling challenge for riders of all ability levels.

To register: Registration via the SJ allocation is now full. The registration via Birmingham Velo remains open, however we will not be able to support with logistics.
