What you need to know

Setting off from Whitby the roads are superb, and as we descend to Sandsend and ride along the sea front, the views are amazing. The most picturesque start to any sportive! But dont relax, well shortly be climbing Lythe bank,with its long drags to the top. From Lythe we disappear into the North Yorkshire Moors and their spell-binding scenery, quiet roads, stunning little villages, tough climbs and exhilarating descents, before returning to Whitby to celebrate our part in the famous Whitby Regatta, now in its 177th year and one of the oldest such events in the World. 32 miles, 58 miles, 79 miles.

The Tour of Flanders or Ronde van Vlaanderen, Belguim. Probably the biggest Sportive on the calendar.

Tour of Flanders had its 101st edition in 2017. Today it is one of the five Monuments of cycling and one of the two major cobbled classics along with ParisRoubaix. This race stops Belgium. Fabian Cancellara won in 2014 and 85.7% of the population of the country watched his victory either live or on television!

The Tour of Flanders weekend will offer you the opportunity to ride in the amateur event "We Ride Flanders" 16000 riders tackle the course before watching the Pros on Sunday. Flanders is famous for featuring short, sharp climbs with cobbled sections.

A relaxed yet stunning tour around the Somerset levels, this fun ride is about taking your time, enjoying the views and just getting in some early season miles, with some amazing weather in 2018 and a great vibe.

This new sportive returns in 2019. Come join us for a smile that will last for weeks.

Be under no illusion the long route will still test you, its long with an iconic climb and the last 20 miles include a few more climbs just in case you haven't worked hard enough.
With 3 feeds for the long and 2 for the medium, we will refuel you, all you need do is enjoy the day.

The White Horse is a fine way to end your Sportive Season.

With three distance options there is something to suit all abilities. From the 26 mile short route with one challenge climb, the Medium route with some major hills and the long route which tackles both Carlton and White Horse Bank. The routes are all really well designed and though the distances are not overly long there are no sections which are just there to get from A to B. Every mile is on beautiful North Yorkshire Country roads with great views, breath taking views and hardly a car in sight.

As well as the climbs we enjoy some fast and challenging descents and some great sections which are our personnel favorites but hardly known by local riders. The medium and long enjoy a brilliant 15 mile section from the White Horse to Osmotherley, roads you wont know well but will do soon!

Everyone arrives back at the HQ with a real buzz, as we twist through the empty lanes with only cyclists in sight well be lost in what a wonderful route the White Horse is and how enjoyable riding these roads in a Velo29 Event really can be.
