The Rawlinson Bracket is a hilly cycle sportive in the ‘wilds of Warwickshire’ taking in the gradients of the Edge Hill escarpment. The ride marks the anniversary of the passing of a close friend of ours, Nick Rawlinson, in his sleep on 24 February 2012, aged 30.
This event has two objectives; the first is to raise funds for research into, and awareness of, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) to help with their work with preventing further tragic loss such as with Nick, the second is to allow you to experience the type of riding that Nick enjoyed with a passion.
