CHENNAI: The Champions Sportive series, a competitive cycling event for amateur cyclists, will be held across eight cities in the country from August 20 to October 15.

The Chennai leg of the event, organised by Indian Terrain Fashions Limited and choosemybicycle.com, will be held on October 8.

The event format is split into two parts, comprising a competitive leg (100 km race) and non-competitive part (50 km ride).
