Welcome along to the third Tour de Broads family cycling sportive. There are two routes available on the day, the Epic Ride (73 miles) and the Challenge Ride (40 miles).
The Virgin Money Cyclone weekend is one of the longest-running and most respected cycling festivals in the UK. Running from Friday June 19 to Sunday June 21 2015, the festival features three days of cycling for riders at every level:
Friday 19 June – Tyne Six Bridges Leisure Ride
The 2015 Staffordshire Cycling Festival takes place on the 3rd and 4th July and starts with its traditional Friday night criterium races in Stafford town centre, before moving to Milford & the beautiful grounds of Shugborough Estate for Saturday’s activities, incorporating two sportives, a fast and furious mountain bike race, criteriums and a kermesse.
The sportive routes get a refresh this year, and there are also a number of changes to the professional kermesse. The festival caters for all levels of cycling skill and is a fun event for spectators and all the family.
Welcome to one of the oldest established sportives on the UK calendar.
Now in its 11th year the ever evolving Forest of Dean Classic road sportive has gone 2 –DAY with a new route on Sunday, The Monmouthshire Challenge, over roads mostly within the county and offering a good testing ride following some of the British Road race Championship route of 2014 where possible. This is an ideal warm up for the Forest of Dean Classic route on the Monday with over 9000ft 0f climbing over 18 listed climbs all in 90 miles, still presents one of the hardest rides on the UK calendar.
The Etape du Sussex embraces the wonderful countryside of East and West Sussex. The event starts and finishes in the centre of Burgess Hill.
There are three stunning routes to choose from to test all abilities.
All routes start off relatively flat before heading into the Ashdown Forest area where most of the major hills for all three routes reside.
Its fair to say that the Etape du Sussex is a ride of two halves, with the first half being much hillier than the second half.
Classic Route 87 miles
Challenge Route 60 miles
Tour Route 47 miles
The Beacon Rouleur Cyclosportive on the 3rd May 2015 is part of the SRS Events Cyclosportive series in Sussex.
A Rouleur in cycling terms is a rider that is a consistent all rounder, who can ride well over most terrains.
The Beacon Rouleur is a cyclosportive route that suits such a rider. Tough large climbs in the beginning like Ditchling Beacon and Bear Road in Brighton and then the faster flat sections in some really great Sussex countryside make the Beacon Rouleur Cyclosportive a must do event.
Following last year’s successful fundraising Sportive, the volunteer organisers of the York Rally (the cycling festival in June, see http://www.yorkrally.org ) are organising a repeat event this year, on the 20th September 2015. The three routes (36 km, 100 km, 140 km, about 22, 62, 86 miles) are as last year, and will start from Wigginton Village Hall just north of York. The longer rides will head up into the spectacular North York Moors, while the shorter ride stays to the mostly flat countryside below the Howardian Hills.
Shropshire's own Tour of Flanders offers 2 fully signed routes, paying homage to the Belgium classic. The longer 73 mile route has 13 classified climbs with total elevation of 6208 ft. to test the participants’ ability, the shorter 51 mile route still has 7 classified climbs and 4038 ft. of elevation.
Starting from Stan's Cycles in the historic market town of Shrewsbury and taking in the stunning hills and the beautiful countryside that South West Shropshire offers.
The longer route offers a feed station, though not on the shorter route.
London Phoenix invites you to our 8th Easter Classic - Easter Monday, 6th April 2015.
There are two routes on offer - 112km and 54km - with fast times expected for those with the legs!
Both routes will be fully sign posted, and will take you through the quiet country lanes of Essex.
The longer distance will pass through the villages of Good and High Easter, and features a feed station with toliets where you'll also be served free hot drinks and our legendry oat bars and other wholesome goodies.
Entry is just £12
