Jersey info

The 5 Dales Sportive has ran under the umbrella of Richmond Cycling Club for the past 12 years. The club have now decided to handover the event to Velo29 to ensure its longevity as one of the most challenging Sportives in the calendar.

This is in effect for the 2018 event, we’ve moved the date to September which is essential and also avoids a very busy spring calendar, hopefully the new date offers a late season challenge in some fine autumnal weather!

In 2014 Richmond CC introduced the Tour de France Special Edition routes which due to their popularity and excellent feedback Velo29 have decided to continue.

With a choice of 5, 4 and 3 Dales tours to enjoy, this is one of the toughest rides there is! The 5 dales at 190km and 3,500m of ascending is brutal by any ones standards. The routes and scenery are stunning, this is a part of the World not often explored on a bike, we go so far into the Dales that unless well supported in an event such as this, few would brave the challenge!
