Sportives are long distance organised events. A cycling sportive route usually takes in the most challenging roads in the area, with long, steep climbs and descents, testing all round bike riding skills rather than flat out speed. It’s the cycling equivalent of running a marathon (but not racing the marathon). Whilst our sportive events will be at their most popular in summer, we run events all year round.
Although routes are sign posted and riders are supported along the route, participants are responsible for their own safety and conduct.
