This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

Sportive Cross is our mixed terrain event series thats designed with cyclocross and adventure road bikes in mind. Theyre an ideal way to add some extra interest to your riding especially over the winter months not only helping to keep you fit but also great for testing your bike handling skills.
You can expect roughly a 50:50 mix of road and off road sections on the local bridleway or byways and with this ride weve pretty much managed to tick the full list of terrains featuring everything from smooth tarmac to gravel, grass, sand and mud sections.

Based at the Evans Cycles Head Office, this is an established ride with a very well refined route. Researched and developed by various members of the Evans outfit, we believe this is as a good a day of riding as youll get in the south-east.As with all RIDE IT classic events, there will be a choice of route distances, friendly staff and likeminded riders throughout.

This route also overlaps with sections of our flagship event King of the Downs, so if you enjoy it and fancy a slightly tougher challenge, check it out later in the year.

    Really well organised enjoyable event. Very cold to start and a bit muddy but good medium challenging course .
  • Did the Long Route in 2018

    Long route is tough if very wet
  • Did the Long Route in 2018

    The mud! Some areas wouldve been challenging on a mountain bike so were downright impossible on a cross or adventure bike. So a mention of the possible need to shoulder the bike wouldve helped. At least to prepare mentally!

    The event was excellent. The weather this year was colder than previous events, so plan ahead with extra kit.

    Great course- had a bit of everything, from fast rolling gravel sections to the odd technical descent. My only criticism would be that some of the link road sections were on busy roads, even on a Sunday morning. I know the area well, so knew there were other options on quieter lanes. The weather was great which helped, will definitely do it again and try and improve on my 10th place finish!
