A Beginner’s Guide to Sportive Riding

What to Expect in a Velo29 Sportive

NEW FOR 2023 – 32km SHORT Route Option!

Ease yourself back into Sportive riding and blow off some winter cobwebs in this Winter Warm Up Sportive. Aimed to prepare you for the up and coming Monument Sportive season and break up that winter training. Test out new equipment, ease yourself back in after the winter break or just break the monotony of a long winter training alone! This is a slightly shorter route than normal, not too many hills, a later morning start but all the full features you would expect from a full-size Velo29 Sportive.

Great parking and facilities at Croft, we depart track-side and complete a lap of the circuit then head out onto the lovely quiet and quite flat lanes. High hedges protect us from side winds for much of the route.

A new feed stop at Great Smeaton Village Hall for all routes, all the treats you expect at a Velo29 Feed!

Once back at Croft you can enjoy watching the final laps of the Velo29 Winter Race Series on the circuit whist you tuck into your post ride BBQ Sausage bun!
