UK Gravel Events


Gravel, CX, All Road, Adventure – ‘go anywhere’ is the new normal in cycling. CX Sportive events are the original mixed surface rides for any bike, any rider!

Coronavirus Update

Current Status: Events to resume after lockdown ends.

All events are planned to go ahead on their scheduled (or rescheduled) dates after lockdown lifts on December 2nd. The new tier system rules and allocations allow for outdoor sports events to go ahead, safely organised.

Outside of imposed lockdowns, we are proceeding with events based on the assessment that our events are a safe activity in current circumstances, for the following reasons:

  1. They are not 'static gatherings'. They spread participants over wide, remote areas and varied time periods by design.
  2. Off-road cycling is a naturally socially distancing activity.
  3. We have risk assessed every aspect of the events and introduced new safety procedures wherever necessary.

We will continue to follow official advice and best practice in running our events, and to monitor changes in advice.

For details of the precautions we are taking to keep events safe, see our full coronavirus information update here.

Welcome to CX Sportive

Cycling is changing! For years, it’s been all about what type of rider you were, what kind of bike you needed for what kind of terrain.
Not any more! Do anything bikes and a ride everything attitude are cycling’s new rock and roll, and that’s what CX Sportive events are all about!

All terrain, all bikes, all riders!

Where the road runs out, CX Sportive events keep going!

Join the Gravel Revolution!

Heard about Gravel Bikes, but wondering exactly what they’re for? The answer is – pretty much anything you want! A Gravel Bike is just a road/cyclocross style bike, redesigned to go further and faster, whether you’re on dirt, tarmac, grass, grit or, yes, even gravel!

It’s that simple, and so are our events! It’s just about riding, no limits, no preconceptions, just ride! And it doesn’t matter what you ride – the CX/Gravel revolution inspired us, but our rides are just as much fun on a 29er or 27.5 MTB, or even on your classic, old skool hardtail!
