Road Cycling Events

Cycling is known for its friendly community, and those already hooked on the sport are known for spreading the cycling love and encouraging new people to get involved. Road Cycling is growing in popularity in the UK, with over 2,200 registered cycling clubs and 125,000 registered members of the British Cycling organisation which also acts as a nationwide governing body. Reasons for getting involved in the sport are varied and all abilities are welcome. Many have been inspired to take up the sport after being inspired by the achievements of high profile cyclists - from the sprints of Mark Cavendish to the Olympic heroics of Bradley Wiggins and the recent Tour de France triumphs of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas. For some, the love for Road Cycling was born out of lockdown - with many using it as a healthy way to help keep both mind and body healthy. There are a huge range of events on offer for all ages and abilities ranging from leisurely tours to more competitive races. Sportives (mass participation cycling events) are the most popular format, and can range from sprint distances to long-distance formats. An Audax event is a long-distance cycle within a limited time-frame. Check out what’s on offer...
