Sportive HQ's logo
Sportive HQ
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.

Well organised event. Probably the cheapest 100 miler around but quality is amazing. Great atmosphere, great signage, GREAT FOOD STATIONS 😊. Would recommend this ride to any rider at any level. It was my partners first 100 miler and she loved it.

Did the 61 Mile in 2019
An absolute superb flat event that i was more than skeptical about in relation to the claim of such a flat course. To be fair, only 72 meters over 62 miles is somewhat of an achievement to keep so low.The roads selected were so quiet and flat with while not amazing views, it certainly was picturesque all the way round the course and one i certainly plan on putting in the diary again next year.Well done to all the Sportive HQ team, a really well run and carefully chosen roads event that more people need to give a go at.Well done

Great route organised by the team at Sportive HQ. The route is flat and the only part that held you up was going through Spalding. Great feed stops with plenty of choice.
