Back to All Events

Otley Sportive 2016

  • Otliensians Rugby Club 89 Pool Rd Otley, LS21 1HL United Kingdom (map)

Our original ride is back for its sixth year.  Weve kept the route the same as the last two years as the feedback we have had has proven that our route is one of the best we have created and want to keep it as our standard route.

The 73 mile route takes on 6000ft of climbing, including the infamous Greenhow Hill. Heading out from Otley, to Almscliff Cragg, Beckwithshaw, Ripley, onto Masham, before heading back to Pateley Bridge and then up to Appletreewick, Bolton Bridge and returning to Otley.

Our medium route takes on 3500ft of climbing, heading out on the same route to Ripley, before heading over to Sawley, until getting to Greenhow Village before coming back to Appletreewick, Bolton Bridge and returning to Otley.

Upon finishing the event you can return back to the Rugby Club for Tea, Coffee, Cake and a BBQ.  The bar will also be open for those who wish to finish with an alcoholic beverage.

This year we introduce timing to our events, this will see how quick you complete the course.
