A Beginner’s Guide to Sportive Riding

What to Expect in a Velo29 Sportive

The Great Yorkshire Sportive rides on some of Yorkshire’s finest roads. We have 3 routes of 45/ 80/ 106 miles in this very varied event!

None of the routes are super hilly, the long has 1,500m of vert which over 106 miles isn’t too dramatic.

The routes have a pan flat start, some lumps in the middle then flat back to York.

The Howardian Hills represent a perhaps unexpected challenge in the middle. The long route enjoys 2 very significant “lumps” in the 70-90km region, be ready for them!

Well stocked feed stops on all routes, great signage and awesome ride support along with our super friendly atmosphere.
An event that attracts a strong Female participation too
