Organised Cycle Events 2019 – e.g. Sportives, Reliability Trials and Audax

The cost of these events will depend on what distance you do and when you book your place. Many do early bird prices as well as standard prices and some do prices for signing up on the day. Check the individual websites for details.

A Sportive is a non competitive ride along a marked route. Riders start in small groups and progress at their own speed. Often organised as a charity event.

An Audax is similar to a sportive but the route is not marked, you need to follow a map/route instructions and collect stamps or solve clues on the way.

A Reliability Trial (Rel/Tri) is a local cycling club sportive which is usually run during the winter pre race season.
