Ordnance Survey announces Spin Series sportives for 2016

OS_SPINOrdnance Survey is again the Official Mapping Partner of the Spin Series

Ordnance Survey has today announced that it has again teamed up with UK Cycling Events to be the Official Mapping Partner for five early season cycle sportives.

Following on from a successful inaugural season the 2016 series will feature classic road rides as well as off-road trail sessions aimed to suit riders of all abilities.

Those who book a spot on one of the rides will automatically get a month’s free subscription to the OS Maps app, perfect for helping plan routes for future rides.

Vamper haven’t taken part in an Ordnance Survey sportive yet, but having ridden a number organised by UK Cycling Events, we are keen to try the Spin Series.

Featuring nice early season distances these look like the perfect tonic to a festive season of excess.
