About


Rideventures is run by Andy Dawson with 20 years of event management experience plus 15 years of training and competing.

"I caught the sportive bug in 2009 with the classic Autumn Epic in Wales.  Back then I didn't know if I could finish a 150km ride.  Now-a-days I'm racing for a fast time and taking on enormous Italian climbs."

Since then he's become a qualified CTC Ride Leader and a British Cycling L2 coach and he has taken on the organising of his old, favourite sportive - the Autumn Epic.  "I could never have imagined actually running this great event when I first started, but now with a group of friends we are pulling together the 2016 Epic".

Andy also organises sportives for charity:

The "Round the Wrekin" for Compton Hospice has support from famous cycle commentator Hugh Porter - who's also a 4 time World Champion.

The "Tour d'Arts Alive" is for a Shropshire theatre and film network putting on shows in village halls.  The sportive features the best of the quietest lanes in Shropshire and had been identified as particularly suitable for female riders in 2016 by British Cycling.

Andy also runs coaching session for adults and you can catch is latest courses on the main Rideventures website.
