What you need to know about Road Cycling

Discover UK and International Road Cycling events. Featuring Sportives, Gran Fondos and Charity Bike Rides in our 2018 Cycling Calendar. Cycling is a hugely popular sport but can sometimes seem a closely guarded secret, there’s a lot of jargon and kit but once you pop, you absolutely can’t stop. It’s a great weekend activity, go with friends and cruise round city parks or country lanes, you’ll be addicted in no time.

Different road cycling event types

We sort our cycling events by Short (0-50km), Medium (50-100km), Long (100-200km) and Ultra (200km+). Most of these are Sportives. Here are some cycling event names defined:

  • Gran Fondo — a mass participation cycling event at least 120km long. A large event with closed roads, usually chip timed. People travel all over Europe to compete in these events.
  • Century — a cycle of 100 miles (160.9 km) or more within 12 hours, usually as a club sponsored event. A large event with closed roads, people can get there PBs here. Usually chip timed.
  • Sportives — most of the cycling events on our site are sportives, these are the most popular endurance cycling events. They’re held all over the world and rarely exclude traffic. They’re more relaxed and whilst people do go for PBs it’s a much more convivial atmosphere than the more formal Gran Fondo races.

A fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious, younger riders or just those with not enough time for a full-on enduro weekend. Or even if you just fancy a good day of enduro fun.

Welcome to the second year of our introductory-level enduro race, designed to provide a sweet way into the joy of enduro racing. This is Enjoyro!

After last years success, we are devoting a whole day to this event in 2018 more riding time = more fun.

G-Form Enjoyro is for have-a-go enduro riders who might feel slightly intimidated by the perceived commitment, technical difficulty or length of normal enduro races. Its also intended as a taster event for both adults and younger riders (age 12 and older*). Dont worry if you spot people taking part who looks like their very experienced enduro types chances are theyre accompanying one of the kids or a less experienced enduropal. Theyre not there to hunt you down (unless theyre your own off-spring perhaps).

The Wiggle Sussex Gran Fondo will show you the best of what West Sussex and Hampshire have to offer and then both the North and South Downs - yep, the 125-mile route really is a long one. Nine major climbs and five other significant ascents will come before you as this mega-mile epic unfolds, giving this the potential to be your crowning glory of the seasons riding success.

Starting just outside of Chichester, the route passes Cocking, flirts with Midhurst and almost kisses Liphook, skirting under Petersfield before heading north.

A High Cross feed stop signifies the highest north this will take you, before looping back. Small villages such as Kilmeston, Warnford and Brockbridge will soon blur into one as you count down the miles until the finish line.

Crossing over the top of Portsmouth, then Chichester, its smooth sailing back to base camp. After a mega day of riding, youll need those last few miles to be as straightforward as possible!

More than 100 miles lay in wait for a true Scottish sportive test on the Brewin Dolphin Ochil Hills Sportive. Exploring the gently undulating terrain of Fife, Perth and Kinross, this ride will take you to iconic areas around Glen Eagles, Knockhill and beyond on a days riding not to be forgotten.

Departing from the Lochore Meadows Country Park, the course begins to head north in to the Cleish Hills with a quick descent and some excellent views, shortly before arriving in Benarty Hill and Loch Leven. Looping around Loch Leven, the route aims for Milnathort, and in our first course split Short riders head east while Standard and Epic go north for Glen Farg.

After reaching the Bridge of Earn, the route turns west towards Dunning, at which point the Standard riders go back in a south-easterly direction and the Epic riders bear true south to Castlehill Reservoir. Its then a case of following the course arrows north, through the Gleneagles district and along the River Devon.

After the climb out of Gleneagles, youll head east through Auchterarder back to Dunning. From Dunning, a long climb out awaits before heading south to Kinross, after which the course cuts through the Cleish Hills for one final time, tackling the climb to Knockhill on the way back to the ride HQ, where a finishers medal and t-shirt wait for you.

As per last years event, you also have the option of signing up to the Velo Club. This option gives you everything the normal entry gives you, and you can still choose to ride any of the three routes available, but gives you a lot of extras.
