Sportive cycling events: what’s on in 2011

Cyling Active What's On / sportivephoto

November - Downland Autumn Classic

Picture 8 of 8

Photos: www.sportivephoto.com

There are more UK sportive cycling events than ever before but don’t hang around too long to enter because rides are already selling out if you have your heart set on a particular one. If you do miss out, you may be tempted to look a little further afield; and why not?

Don’t forget to join one of the national cycling organisations, where there are insurance benefits and discounts and do think about joining a local cycling club or other group. Sign up with British Cycling if you’re leaning towards sporty riding and racing or the excellent CTC if you’re thinking along more leisurely lines. Both will steer you towards the right local club or group.

CA Says
One of the friendliest events we rode last year with the achievable distance and seafront finish lending it a family atmosphere. The first third is merely lumpy before you have to tackle the steady climb to the top of the Mendips via Burrington Combe. The tops of the Mendip Hills are rolling with beautiful views especially where you tumble off the ridge for the descent to the final third across the Somerset Levels.

How far 100 miles/ 70 miles
Entry £37/ £32 EOL £40/£35
CA says Combining two of the UK’s areas of outstanding beauty along with a unique ferry trip gives a sportive an interesting twist. This three-part sportive starts from the iconic New Forest National Park with the route sweeping south through the forest passing picturesque villages and wild animals at the roadside before arriving at Lymington where your timing will stop. Cyclists will board the next ferry, cross the Solent and arrive on the Isle of Wight. Your time will start again as you continue the second part of your sportive around the sensational Isle of Wight. The route will head clockwise around the island and picks the quietest roads and coastline vistas. Once riders arrive back at Yarmouth, your time will stop and you’ll take the ferry back to the mainland. The final leg is a short ride back through the stunning forest to the finish. The shorter route still completes a lap of the Isle of Wight but has a shorter New Forest section.

How far
98/59 miles
Entry £24/£26
CA says With some slight modifications to the 2010 route, Wiggle Wild Edric takes you on a historical ride around Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. The ride takes you to the top of the most rewarding hills with some breathtaking views over Shropshire and Wales with exciting and rewarding descents to enjoy. Between climbs, the roads are made for quiet bike cruising or fast riding along well maintained and traffic free roads. There are mountains to climb and hidden valleys to explore in Shropshire – the secret county. This years Wiggle Wild Edric is a sportive for everyone but it’s still one of the toughest and most fulfilling challenges around. Not only will your legs be challenged but your whole mind, body and soul too.
