Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice – ‘Ride the Reservoir’ cycle sportive – Sunday 18 July 2021

Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice is hosting the annual ‘Ride the Reservoir’ cycle sportive through the Worcestershire countryside on Sunday 18th July (subject to the ‘roadmap’ dates remaining as proposed).

The route will pass through Dodderhill. Plesae see details of the event and the approximate timings as well as outlining the arrangements in terms of route signage and marshalling.

  • ‘Ride the Reservoir’ is a non-competitive, mass participation cycling event which is being organised and delivered in accordance with British Cycling, the National Governing Body of cycling, and their Non-competitive Guidelines.
  • There will be no road closures for the event, which starts and finishes at Newman University, Bartley Green (shown by a white triangle on a green square on the map)
  • The cyclists should pass through your area between 10.15 and 15.45
  • Route signage (black arrows on a yellow background) will be installed where appropriate during the week before the event and taken down either immediately after the cyclists have passed or in the next few days
  • Warning signs to raise awareness of the event will also be installed where necessary at selected locations on roads crossing and/or joining the route
  • On the day, there will be marshals at key locations on the route to guide and encourage cyclists as well as warning other road users of the event
  • It is hoped for participation from 700 cyclists.
  • As the event is of a non-competitive nature, the riders’ ability will vary. Riders will follow the rules and regulations of the Highway Code.
  • There are 75km and 100km routes which overlap for most of the 75km route, with a longer loop in the south eastern section to create the 100km route.
  • Full details of each route can be viewed by following the appropriate link
  • 75km route   https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/3700929730
  • 100km route https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/2916241192

‘Ride the Reservoir 2021’ is special – it will be the first large scale participation event since March 2020 for St Mary’s Hospice – It is hoped that it will be a huge success, and that communities along the route will come out and encourage the cyclists. The route is challenging and involves some long climbs over the Clent and Lickey Hills, so please give the riders your support. We also hope that the signage will be respected, the event should raise around £30,000 towards the care of patients with life limiting illnesses, and their families, in Birmingham and Sandwell, so whilst it is recognised it may cause a little short term inconvenience, it is in aid of an excellent cause.

The event also offers the opportunity for communities to get involved any assistance would be welcome from signage installation to marshalling as local knowledge and support brings an extra dimension to the event, so, if you would like to be involved in any way, please contact myself or the route co-ordinator, Richard Green –

Government areas – Bromsgrove, Malvern Hills, Redditch, Worcester, or
Wychavon to fill vacancies on the Independent Remuneration Panel.
The Panel recommends to each District Council in Worcestershire the level of
allowances to be paid to Councillors and other non-elected people such as coopted members. The aim of the Panel is to ensure that the setting of such
allowances is open to robust, independent, and local scrutiny.
If successful you will join a Panel consisting of five members. The Panel currently
meets up to 6 times a year for up to 2 hours at a time with occasional ad-hoc
meetings for IRP related projects.

applicable research.
