Coronavirus Update

(Updated Tuesday 8th Sept)

The latest government restrictions introducing a limit on gatherings of over six people includes an exception for organised sports events "organised in a way limiting the spread of coronavirus". We are going ahead with all our currently scheduled events on this basis and 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 latest 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!
