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.

Prudential RideLondon: an annual festival of cycling - A true legacy of the 2012 Games

Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is a world-class festival of cycling. The fifth edition will take place over the weekend of 28-29 July 2018.

There is no other closed-road event like it that combines the fun and accessible element of a free family ride in central London with the excitement of watching the worlds best professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic and Prudential RideLondon Classique.

Taking a cue from the London Marathon, amateur cyclists also participate in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 a 100-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professionals, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes. For the first time in 2016, the event also featured the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 a 46-mile sportive created specifically for newer and also younger cyclists.

Redbourn is a wonderful little village with a rich cycling heritage. Its easily accessible from London and the surrounding areas by both road and rail.

Weve put together 3 spectacular routes that we feel will suit most levels. With the buzz of the crowd and being part of something bigger than your usual group ride, this organized bike event will allow you to push the boundaries of your usual comfort zones, knowing youll be supported both in the well-stocked feed stops and in your mechanical needs.
Coupled with the last day of the Tour de France, youll certainly be fired up and raring to get on your bike after having watched the pros battling it out for 3 weeks. Therell even be enough time to get home for the evening proceedings where hopefully itll be a GB rider topping the podium.

Now a non-operational facility, the secret nuclear bunker at Kelvedon was designed to protect all sorts of important folk during the Cold War. Now open to the public, we think its the perfect (and most interesting) venue to hold a RIDE IT sportive. Situated just down the road from Epping Forest, this ride will feature routes that take in quiet lanes and gently rolling terrain around the Essex countryside. This is one of our flatter rides that will allow you to clock up some miles whilst enjoying some beautiful English scenery at one of the best times of year for road cycling.
