The Original Sportive

This was our first event and continues to be the event we continue to be so incredibly proud of.  It's our headliner. 

The event has always been inclusive to all ability of cyclist and we continue to be proud of the ethos of our rides.  Our Otley Sportive is aimed for all riders whether its the first sportive someone has undertaken or whether they are a seasoned cyclist waiting for their next challenge.

We host two routes; a longer and shorter route:

Long Route: This has remained the same for the last few years.  The feedback received has been outstanding.  At a distance of 119km and climbs over 1900 metres on some of Yorkshires finest hills - Trapping Hill and Greenhow Hill.

Medium Route: Similar to the long route we have kept this the same for the last few years.  It enables individuals to step up their riding having some challenge but being comfortable to enable you to recover once climbing.  A distance of 85km and climbing just over 1200 metres.
