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.

Cycling Weekly celebrated their 125th anniversary two years ago, with a 125-mile day in the saddle through the glorious Cheshire countryside. So successful was the event that we decided to give The Cycling Weekly 125 sportive a regular slot on our sportive calendar, joining up with the Sigma Sports Challenge Series. With an epic 23 percent climb and a timed lap of the international Oulton Park Circuit among the route highlights its easy to see why!

Starting out at the revered Oulton Park Race Circuit you'll start off with an untimed lap of the circuit, which as well as easing you into the sportive gives you an opportunity to recce the circuit before that all-important timed lap.

Set within the Clwydian Mountain Range, this ride is as tough as it is beautiful. The Northern counterpart to our South Wales Event, this ride is equally challenging. With over 8000ft of climbing and a high point of 1500ft (long route), this ride will seriously test strength and endurance. We will take on some of the most unforgiving terrain in the area including the notorious Blwch Penbarras. The difficulty of this ride is offset with truly stunning scenery and superb road cycling on some of the quietest roads in the UK. This ride is one of our more challenging routes, so if you enjoy hills, this ride is for you.
