A Beginner’s Guide to Sportive Riding

What to Expect in a Velo29 Sportive

This year the White Horse Sportive is the official Sportive of The Tour of Britian Stage 4!

With three distance options, there is something to suit all abilities. From the 60km short route with one “challenge” climb, the 117km Medium route with some major hills and the new TOB 160km long route which tackles Birk Brow, Carlton and White Horse Bank with a stack of other lumps along the way! The routes are all really well designed and though the distances are not overly long there are no sections which are just there to get from A to B. Every mile is on beautiful North Yorkshire country roads with great views, breathtaking views and hardly a car in sight.

As well as the climbs we enjoy some fast and challenging descents and some great sections which are our personnel favourites but hardly known by local riders. The medium and long enjoy a brilliant 15mile section from the White Horse to Osmotherley, roads you won’t know well but will do soon!

Everyone arrives back at the HQ with a real buzz, as we twist through the empty lanes with only cyclists in sight we’ll be lost in what a wonderful route the White Horse is and how enjoyable riding these roads in a Velo29 Event really can be.
