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.

Ride with former Welsh Rugby Union star Shane Williams MBE at this last club, Amman Utd RFC. It just so happens to be an ideal starting location to explore the surrounding countryside of Carmarthenshire by bike. And what a countryside it is; the roads, hills and vistas are among some of the best cycling routes in the UK.

You will go over the impressive Black Mountain, through the Brecon Beacons National park, ride through the centre of the historic Welsh market towns of Llandovery and Brecon as well as the numerous picturesque valley villages and hamlets and mountain passes along the way. All with a mixture of decent climbs, technical downhills and nice long flat stretches. The two course are challenging but also achievable for all and with the timing of the event being mid October its ideal for one last ride of the season, or a social gathering after a hard season of competing or even a personal challenge to build up to throughout the year. There's something for everyone.

OC Sport, the owner and organiser of the successful Haute Route cyclosportive series, is expanding its offering for amateur cyclists with the launch of a brand new Haute Route concept a series of three-day racing events beginning with the Haute Route Ventoux in 2018. The French Provencal town of Bdoin will be the base of the three-day Haute Route Ventoux for the foreseeable future.

The Haute Route Ventoux will be built from the same DNA as the full seven-day Haute Route events which are widely regarded as the pinnacle of amateur cycling in Europe. The key difference is that the Haute Route Ventoux will be based in one place for three days, hugely simplifying rider logistics, meaning riders can stay in one hotel, will no longer have to pack their bags before each stage and will be able to bring family and friends along as well.

Celebrating perhaps cyclings most iconic mountain rising above the Rhne valley in Provence, the Haute Route Ventoux will include a total distance of 270km of cycling and over 7,500 metres of climbing over three stages in what is sure to test even the best amateur riders to the limits. The Haute Route Ventoux will end with an Individual Time Trial finishing at the summit of Mt Ventoux at 1,912 metres above sea level.

Our event includes an official CTC double century as well as a single century option. Both rides start and finish in Castro Valley, California.

Our double century route has three segments on which we include an experience filled with many of the best and most memorable cycling roads offered in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first segment has many small climbs and descents heading North to Grizzly Peak and back.

The most challenging part of the route is the second segment, which climbs and descends Mt. Diablo.

The third and final segment of the double century ride travels to these other great cycling offerings in the Bay Area: Sunol-Ohlone Regional Park, the Livermore vineyards, and the foothills of Mt. Diablo. The final 60 miles are less demanding, resulting in a finish without any significant challenging climbs.
