Watchet Marauder Sportive- CANCELLED
The inaugural Watchet Marauder Sportive was a resounding success and although Hurricane Bertha threatened our shores she couldn't dampen the spirits of our intrepid adventurers. Yes there was a lot of rain but for a first event everything went very smoothly and by the time the last rider finished the picturesque sea side town of Watchet was bathed in beautiful sunshine and the post ride celebrations including music, BBQ, real ale and massages kept a great vibe going late into the afternoon. The feedback had been overwhelmingly positive and were determined to come back bigger and better. However unfortunately it seems demand wasn't there and although there may be many of you who were biding your time to enter at the last minute as organisers this put us in a very difficult position. We only wanted to run the event if we could guarantee you, the riders, having a brilliant experience and part of that was to be joined on your ride by hundreds of other enthusiasts. With entries being slow we decided that caution was the better part of valour and have now cancelled the event.
