All proceeds from the Pain on the Plain Sportive will go to the Soldiers, Sailors, Army Families Association

The event starts and finishes at Tedworth House, a 17th century building now used as a rehabilitation facility for Army personnel and supported by SSAFA.

The sportive will have two routes on offer – 100 miles and 100km – and takes in public and private military roads on Salisbury Plain. Several optional off-road sections are on offer along the route if any adventurous riders fancy some gravel road action on their road bikes.

There will also be a starter route of 30 miles for inexperienced cyclists wanting to try an organised event for the first time and entry for this will cost £10 on the day. Saturday afternoon will see the Army Cycling Union criterium championships taking place in the grounds of Tedworth House, while there will also be two Go-Ride coaching sessions on Saturday and Sunday.

Entry for either the 100km or 100-mile routes costs £29.50 in advance or £35 on the day. Enter online at
