I’m your host at Folly View – the cleanest and best value self-catering accommodation in South Shropshire


Do you know what a Sportive is?

A Sportive is a long or short distance, mass participation cycle ride, often organised to raise money for a good cause and held annually.

It is meant to be non competitive but many cyclists will challenge themselves against the clock.

Sportive is shortened from Cyclosportive.

There are several events in Shropshire but the ones below are the nearest. There is also a couple in North Herefordshire, one at Leominster and one at Lucton.

Ride the Shropshire Marches 21st May

The Ludlow Brewing Company Sportive 4th June

Georgia Williams Cycle Ride 10th June

Tour d’Arts Alive 25th June

South Shropshire Tors 17th September

We are able to provide lockable storage for bikes and I am sure my husband will let you use his work stand if you decide to stay at Folly View to attend one of these events.
