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.

This event combines the two major concerns of the cyclist - riding and eating. A major difference for this event is the food offering, with more 'real' food at the feedstations and a BBQ and a beer at the end all included in the entry fee. There will be four routes, including a shorter and less hilly option for families and new riders.

We have 3 varied routes to choose from: 24, 50 and 70 miles!

Belles 24 (approx. 1160ft/ 350m of climbing)
Perhaps this is your first sportive/organised ride and you are looking for something to aim for? Our Belles of Belvoir 24 mile route could be the perfect fun challenge to set yourself in 2018. Alternatively you might be an experienced rider and fancy coming along for a social ride with friends. On this circular route on quiet country lanes, you will pass through pretty villages in the Vale, catching glimpses of Belvoir Castle at various points along the way.

Belles 50 miles (approx. 2300ft/ 700m of climbing)
If you want more of a challenge, this ride is the one for you. A fantastic loop around the Vale of Belvoir, with at least a couple of trips up and down the central ridge, this will suit the more seasoned sportive rider, or those of you who want more of a challenge. Our 50 mile route takes in approx. 700m of climbing which includes Terrace Hill, the one local ascent mentioned fondly by Simon Warren in his book, 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs. The climb is short and sweet, but it will certainly get your heart pumping and legs spinning. You will pass two Piece of Cake feed stations on this route.

Belles EXTRA 70 miles (approx. 3300ft/1005m of climbing)
This proved popular again this year, so back by popular demand, is our 70 mile ride. The route takes in a gorgeous and challenging circuit of the Vale of Belvoir, and beyond. You will enjoy stunning scenery and the best of the climbs that the area has to offer. Well keep you refreshed at our two feed stations, evenly spaced. This is no walk in the park, but we think youll love it!

The serious cyclists among you have the chance to push yourself while enjoying some excellent undulations, fast straights and ultimately a brilliant cycling experience.

The route heads South and then East towards the Vale of Belvoir, the sportive route then turns North towards Newark before turning west and heading towards Car Colston and East Bridgford.

The Sportive then splits from the 50 mile route and heads north towards Lowdham and Thurgaton. The route then enters an anti-clockwise loop that takes in Fiskerton, Caunton, Sutton-on-Trent, Wellow, Eakring and Edingley before returning through Thurgaton and back to the remainder of the 50 mile route.

The route finishes by passing through Radcliffe-on-Trent and returning via Holme Pierrepont and the riverside path.

Taking in some of the countys stunning scenery, this is a must-do for any cycling enthusiast.
