Glorious Yorkshire Gravel! By very popular demand, Sportive X!

A stunning route with 7 off-road sectors. Suitable for Gravel Bikes, Cross Bikes, Mountain Bikes and any of the above in E-Bike Format.

We’ve worked not to make the routes mega technical, there are a few sections which will require dismounting from all but the most talented of off-road riders however you’ll very quickly be back on and pedalling the bike!

We ran Sportive X in 2017 and 2018 before the rest of The World went Gravel crazy! Everyone who rode back then came home declaring it one of the best things they have ever done on a bike!

We’ve got check points/ hydration stations at the start of each Sector. There are 2 main feed stops along the way. The off-road sectors do have route signs but they are quite limited due to the nature of the terrain and land ownership. As such we urge the use of a GPS device.

This part of Yorkshire is wonderful in September, we explore some of the views you know really well but from amazing new angles and also delve deep into some really stunning new parts of Glorious Yorkshire.
