FAQs

What is a cycling sportive?

A cycling sportive is a ride on low traffic or traffic free roads and cycle paths that is open to cyclists of all ages and abilities. Sportives have clearly marked courses for you to follow and allow riders to go at their own pace and choose their own distance depending on ability.

What training should I do ahead of my sportive?

The level and amount of training depends on an individual, the distance you will be doing and your cycling experience. However, some guidelines can be found here.

What do I need to bring with me to a cycling sportive?

Most importantly your bike and your helmet. We recommend servicing your bike ahead of our events including checking brakes, tyres and any other moving parts. You must bring some personal identification, cash/card and a mobile phone. You should also bring a puncture repair kit, pump and tyre levers. You should bring any specialist food and drinks you usually consume when cycling. Depending on the weather, sun cream, a rain or warm jacket and gloves are also essential. We recommend wearing eye protection.

Is a cycling sportive for me?

Sportives are open to cyclists of all ages and abilities, so if you enjoy being out on your bike, then they are the perfect thing for you. Sportives are done by those who are new to the sport, experienced riders looking for a new challenge or those training for another event and there are at least 3 different route lengths at each of our events to give you the flexibility to choose a route that matches your ability.

Is it a race?

No, a cycling sportive is not a race and timing is purely for personal benefit. There are many people who aim to get a personal best time around their route and this is of course fine. However, for many riders, the appeal of sportives is that you are free from the competitive pressure, strict rules, and rigid disciplines of pure racing and instead you can enjoy your riding for your own reasons.

How do I register?

You can register for any of our events through their individual pages by going to the ‘Register Online’ tab.

Can I register on the day?

If an event is not fully booked we will accept registrations on the day. However, we advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

What do I get at an ICE event?

At an ICE event you will follow marked routes so you do not need to rely on a satellite device. You will receive a timing chip to record your time and there will be 1 or 2 feed stations depending on the ride length. The free food stops will be full of delicious products from the local area and our ICE partners. Mechanical and medical support will be on all routes to help with any problems you encounter. Once back at the venue you will receive a finisher’s medal or award and free food. At some events there will also be physios, a bar and coffee van for your use at the venue.
