Event summary

Push your limits with this testing sportive. Great for riders looking for more of a challenging ride, the course winds its way through the Yorkshire Wolds and has over 4900ft of elevation. Come to test yourself against one of the toughest courses in the UK or to appreciate the beauty of the Wolds.

Your organiser

Sportive HQ was formed by Matthew Porter in 2014, after having approximately 10 years experience in the organisation of various types of cycling events. It was very much the feeling that sportives were becoming more expensive over the last few years and that need not be the case, value for money can be put alongside quality events. Sportive HQ works alongside local clubs to produce events that riders will want to do every year. We listen to what riders want from an event and endeavour to meet those requests. At Sportive HQ we like to keep things simple, ample free parking, showers, changing rooms, a timed event with well spaced, well stocked feed stations and routes to challenge everyone of all abilities. Sportive HQ helps in the production of many local charity events and have helped raise, alongside local clubs, in excess of £50,000 for local charities over the last few years.

My second event with SportiveHQ was just as good as the first, maybe better! Easy to find by car, well sign posted with great parking. Easy to navigate to registration I was greeted by the same same lovely people from my previous/first time and I received my timing chip, number to display on my bike and the event telephone number in case of any issues. Great amenities at the start with ample toilets and places to get food and drinks. The course was great and had a number of gruelling climbs and long flat sections with outstanding views, there was more stops on this route and I took full use of them stopping at every one. Once I had finished the course I received my timing ticket and purchased a medal whilst having a nice talk with the event staff and fellow cyclists I’d met along the way. Definitely will do this event again as it’s a close to home and look forward to doing many more with SportiveHQ! 11/10… read more

Route description
Route description

The Long Route is undoubtedly more challenging than other routes in The 100 Series. With over 4900ft of elevation, riders will be on a rollercoaster of long ascents and winding descents. The lactic acid in the legs will be worth it however, as riders are treated to some outstanding views. The course highlights include classic climbs through Thixendale and Hanging Grimston.

Long Route GPX

The Medium Route is less difficult but riders will still be met with over 2400ft of climbing. These climbs are gentler and wind through the Wolds, allowing riders to take in the superb scenery.

Medium Route GPX

The Short Route is designed for those looking for a taster of what a sportive has to offer. The route is still challenging and riders will be treated to some great scenery.

This was my first big cycle event. Doing over 100 miles was such a big thing for me, and I was nervous to do it. However the way it was organised and the people that organised it soon put my nerves to bed. It was so well done, everyone seemed to take an interest in you, and it made the ride almost (almost)seem a little bit easier . I can’t recommend these events enough and the team who organised it. I will be back to do more now. Thank you Sportive HQ

Another incredible event laid on by Matt, Chris and the Sportivehq team. Parking is taken care of at the start venue with plenty of space before embarking on a rolling course though some wonderful scenery. 2 stops for tea and biscuits in addition to 2 feed stops keep you going, and provide fuel for the odd epic climb. Mechanical support is second to none with incredibly knowledgeable and helpful mechanics ensuring you get back to the finish zone, this year encompassing a bar, pizza, burger van and live music. You can't get better value!!

As the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire rolled through the East Riding wolds I remember Chris Boardman commenting "forget about the racing for a minute this just looks like a lovely place for a bike ride". It is a hidden gem indeed, superbly unearthed courtesy of the inaugural East Riding 100 sportive. Matt and his ample team of friendly, efficient and knowledgeable volunteers delivered a fantastic event, even fixing the weather for us as we rolled out of Bishop Burton college (a perfect venue with more than enough parking and great facilities) to sample some of the best countryside East Yorkshire has to offer. The opening stretch to Driffield was a gentle introduction along extremely quiet, gently undulating back roads, ticking of the villages of Cherry Burton, Etton, South Dalton, Southburn, Hutton Cranswick and Skerne. Throughout the route every twist and turn had been well signposted by the Sportive HQ team. The level crossing barriers in Driff temporarily saw the peloton swell, much to the bemusement of local shoppers as it eventually made its way up the high street through the town. Back out into the countryside the wildlife lovers were ticking off buzzards, red kites, yellowhammers, hares and stoats to name but some. The first real climb up to Cowlam began to sort the men out from the boys before a fine descent into Weaverthorpe where a tea and biscuit stop awaited at the village hall. Pressing on through Helperthorpe, Sledmere and Fimber we headed for Thixendale a stunning village from which the only escape is upwards, in our case a cheeky little 14% climb on to Thixendale Wold. A hair-raising descent of Uncleby Hill was the prelude to the section feared by many, namely Hanging Grimston - a mile-long climb averaging 10%, strewn with pot holes, gravel and a concoction of farmyard muck which compromise traction and forward mobility in a number of places. Thankfully its two gates were both open today which allowed us some momentum to attack the seemingly endless 20% section near the top. Respite was to follow with a long drop down off the wolds eventually into Buttercrambe and on to Stamford Bridge before the unbelieveably well-stocked feed station at Catton. Then on through Fangfoss, Bolton, Yapham and Meltonby as the flatter section gave way to the lower slopes of Givendale Hill and a sharp descent into the spectacular Millington Dale. This wonderful, gently winding dry valley terminates with a great little climb up to Huggate. From here you can see for miles whilst enjoying the fabulous 4-mile descent to North Dalton and another tea and biscuit stop. The rolling wolds took us up and down through Middleton, Kiplingcotes and Sancton before a lovely smooth flat section along the Cliffe Road and on to the final feed station at North Cave. On through South Cave and the delightful Ellerker we reached the 100-mile point in Elloughton before climbing eventually up to Riplingham with wonderful views of the Humber and Lincolnshire beyond. We undulated our way back through Little Weighton and Walkington before Bishop Burton and the finish line came into view to complete 112 miles of perfection in terms of a day out on the bike. I cannot recommend this one enough - looking forward to the 2020 edition already.

Have done the last two flat 100's and this venue and layout seemed better suited for the start and had a much more relaxed feel to it ( it did appear to be a smaller event tbf ). Route was great with stunning scenery even if the road surface up and down Hanging Grimston left a bit to be desired on road tyres. Our group was toward the last at the food stops and we missed out on most of the food choices, which lead to a couple struggling a bit , this has been raised separately and dealt with quickly and professionally ( sometimes things go wrong and how they are dealt with is a good sign of the commitment to the promises made at sign up - no qualms here on that ) Another excellent day out , and thanks for making sure the extra 6 miles were at the start not the end :)

Very well organised event with friendly, helpful staff everywhere you looked. Start/finish location was excellent with far more facilities than usual for a sportive. The wood fired pizzas, coffee van and bar were especially welcome. I've never done the medium route at an event before, usually preferring the longer challenge, but I found it to be so much more chilled out and relaxed with people having more time to chat and interact at the feed stops. I think I might just be a convert to the shorter courses. Many thanks to all the volunteers without whom these sorts of events wouldn't happen.

If you like a flat easy route this sportive is not for you. Neither does it have the kind of climbs that make you want to break down and cry or take up knitting. It is a happy medium! Very well balanced with a gentle start to warm up and a power flat middle section in the Vale of York. The views were stunning from the tops of the Wolds. Top venue with plenty of tarmac parking and proper toilets/changing space not the dreaded portaloo! One of the best things about Sportive HQ is its use of village halls for food stops as it means a dry warm spot for a refuel even in bad weather. A few people have mentioned an issue with the food... same for me... no wraps at second feed stop.... but then most sportives dont offer a variety of tasty wraps anyway. My Garmin recorded 112 miles and over 6000ft of climbing.... as did most peoples... I think there had been a route change!. Word of warning.... if you don't know the Hanging Grimston climb its worth looking up on you tube.... then you will be prepared for the gravel rutted surface and the false flat before it ramps back up again.

Fantastically well organised event from sign on to medal collection. The staff at the feed stations were very friendly and ready to chat. The only negative mark I could give would be very small niggles about course selection. There were a few right turns onto fast moving roads and going though the town centre and having to negotiate shoppers and traffic lights wasn’t great, and the last one was hanging grimston, not for its severity as a hill, but it’s severity as a gravel route!!Honestly small niggles aside I would and will be recommending this course as it was truly a pleasure to see the roads that aren’t as commonly used.Thank you

When I measured up the route afterwards it came out as 181km/113mi, which made it the longest ride I have ever done! Nevertheless, this was a real treat: a tour of the East Riding that (despite occasionally straying into North Yorkshire) offered a taste of the varied aspects of the county, from the chalk streams south of Driffield, up onto the Wolds, down into the eastern Vale of York and meandering through to the flood plain of the Humber. An extremely well-chosen route, on mostly quiet rural roads, some very rural indeed (yes, Hanging Grimston, I'm looking at you!); my "gravel bike" certainly seemed to enjoy itself! Despite the complexity of the itinerary the signposting was consistently brilliant, and at no point did I find myself wondering whether I had missed a turn. The weather played its part too: a real high summer feel (and smell) which provided near-perfect cycling conditions. But such a long ride could easily have turned into a "suffer fest" had it not been for the almost uncanny appearance of a feed station in some local village hall just at the point when energy reserves were beginning to dip, to be promptly restored by tea and biscuits or cake. Excellent stuff! All in all, this was a great day out; thanks to the organisers for making it such a stress-free and pleasant experience.

I would thoroughly recommend this event to anyone who enjoys cycling. The long route was punishing and longer than expected (112 miles) but the scenery was stunning all the way round. This was the best sportive I have entered in terms of support and encouragement from the many available staff at the event. Parking was in a tarmac car park with plenty of space. Because riders of the long, medium and short rides had different start times, their was no hanging about at the start. The 4 stars for organisation is because of a slight issue with availability of food but their was a satisfactory outcome. Loved the event, thanks to all involved.

A mostly quiet route around the East Riding of Yorkshire with splendid views over the area with wide skies over the Vale of York and later the Humber Bridge.The ride featured no.115 Hanging Grimston from Simon Warren's popular UK cycling climbs lists so if your "collecting" all 200 then this sportive will help you towards that goal - at the same time you will enjoy the climb out of Thixendale and a smattering of other hill climbs.As always the organisation and atmosphere at the event was spot on and thank you for booking the weather yet again!The course is satisfying undulating - if your expecting a flat ride then your in for a surprise with some interesting ascents in this part of Yorkshire. My personal view is that there are no steep gradients during this sportive - just challenging ones which will get you out of the saddle - aside from Hanging Grimston which I did see a few walking.Great ride!

It was an absolutely fabulous day and brilliantly organised by Sportive UK. The route was incredible and a really good mix of flat and hills including a couple of challenging climbs which is always good fun. I think Sportive UK do an incredible job and such good value for money. The signposting was fab, nobody could possibly go wrong, the feed stations were very welcoming and generous with the food and drink on offer, not to mention the mechanical support which you offer and the mobile medical support on motorbikes which was great but which thankfully we didn't need. Overall I managed to ride my bike 112 miles at 16mph which I have never done before and at the end I still felt fresh and could have gone further whereas on previous 100+ rides which I've done solo I was always shattered at the end. I can only put that down to the support provided on the day. by you guys So, from me Sportive UK get a huge thumbs up and I will definitely be doing a lot more sportives with you in the future. Thank you.

Only disappointment, no wraps left at the main feed station. Perhaps a ticket handout at registration would sort 1per rider. Great course. Not overly taxing which allowed you to enjoy more of the East Yorkshire countryside. Thanks all

A super day out in God's own country. My friend Rob Fowler found a Garmin Oregon 650 - we are struggling to find your contact details. It was on the track at the top of the climb at Thixehdale.

Great event , wasn’t happy at first when told about the extra 6 miles as always struggle with the last ten when doing a ton but with the extra coffee and tea stops just to fill water bottles great idea so with the extra 6 making it 112 it’s my 2nd longest sportive, plus the idea with the merchandise great idea love the medals plus a great way to annoy the wife when hanging them all off the curtain poles , great event thanks again , still flat 100 still my favourite sportive but just for one reason guess what ??

The event was very well organised, the course was lovely through the Wolds and very well marked. The marshals on bikes were very friendly and assisted very well. The finish was like a gathering, with deckchairs and places to eat and drink, great venue. Would definitely recommend and we will return next year.

What can I say, the inaugural East Riding 100... Brilliant! Another well organised, friendly, exceptionally well fed, ride. We do loads of Sportives, but keep coming back to the ones organised by Sportive HQ, as they are simply amazing. They are organised by Matt and his team, who are keen cyclist, so they know how to make an event for other cyclists. The 112 mile route today had something for everyone, a Simon Warren rated climb, quiet lanes and even a long flat section that allowed us to get into team time trial mode. Support was provided by two feed stations and two coffee/tea stops keeping you fuelled and hydrated. And can I just mention that the food is great, usually home made or baked, supplemented with fruit and snacks as well as energy drinks. I do feel a need to say a special thank you for the freshly made cheese and tomato sandwiches at the second food stop along with fantastic pork pies, sausage rolls and quiche! I think you could genuinely put weight on during the ride! The support team at the feed stops also need singling out for their lovely friendly attitude, and the added support of a mechanic and medical motorcycles, you simply can’t get better! I think this goes to show you don’t have to be a multinational to put on a brilliant event, so let’s keep it local. Thanks again and see you next year!

Brilliant event from start to finish!!! Well organised, well sign posted and the food at the feed stations was first class unlike some of the rubbish served up on other similar events. A couple of First Aiders were on hand on motorcycle’s which was a brilliant idea and something I’ve never seen at a cycle event before. I definitely recommend this and any other event that Sportive HQ are involved with and I’ll certainly be back next year!!! Well done to everyone involved for all of their hard work in putting on today and particularly the volunteers 👏🏻👌🏻👍🏻

This is the first East Riding HQ sportive and may it long live. The fantastic landscapes and great routes make it a must for all riders, I will ride it again next year. Start and finish is well situated in a college grounds of Bishop Burton and I went for accommodation and that a plus if you come far for an early start. Great event for first time.

Our ladies Cycling group had a great day out on the bike. Very nice friendly atmosphere at registration and from all those at the feed stations which were welcome and there was a good choice of cake , wraps and fruit to keep us fuelled up. My only criticism would be about the section of the route near Driffield where we were sent along a very gravely path and came out just before Wetwang. My road bike was not suited at all to the surface and at times felt unstable to ride on. Thankfully no punctures. Apart from that it was all fantastic and had a very enjoyable day.Thanks 🚴‍♀️

I loved it! The start venue is awesome. We stayed in our Motorhome overnight and slept soundly. Onsite security were welcoming and efficient. The ride itself was amazing. It was a challenge, particularly as I managed to do a total of 61.57 miles! 😂The route was well marked and the after-ride catering etc was great. There was a true fellowship amongst the riders. The picture of birds are from Bishop Burton College. Thank you Sportive HQ.

Another great event from Sportive HQ, loved the route, even on the Medium route nearly 1000 meters of climbing 😀 , some fast flat bits and an unexpected piece of ‘strada bianchi’ thrown in for good measure! Unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the festivities at the finish, had to shoot straight off. Top stuff anyway Matt, hope this becomes a fixture on your calendar 👍
