True Cycling has a rich 4 year history. It was established initially as Otley Sportive Cycling Organisation, with our growth of event portfolio across Yorkshire we have changed the name, and defined clearly what we stand for.
Otley Sportive was developed out of a desire and passion to support community cycling with a social ethos. This project started in 2011 by getting a annual ride established, in 2012 we had 400 riders take part in the annual ride.
We quickly looked at working with Otley Cycle Club to develop and support their leisure section rides. This grew to be our Social Series.
We also support the work of the Cycle Path Rides, are the lead supporter of the Do You Ride Community Cycling Strategy and work closely with the Otley Bridge Church Scout Group to promote cycling within their Scout Group.
We are all about encouraging individuals to cycle, to allow cycling to bring its benefits to the community of Otley and surrounding areas.
In 2014 our 4th Sportive, nearly a year into Do You Ride, and are strongly looking at Women’s Cycling and celebrated the TdF coming to Yorkshire.
2015 is a new chapter, making our brand significantly more commercial and with a clear aim to deliver an "Inclusive premium cycling experience".
