Eversheds Sutherland Yorkshire Sportif - Corporate Sportive
Yorkshire has fast become the epicentre of cycling in the UK, thanks to the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart and the legacy it left behind in the guise of the annual Tour de Yorkshire.
With the 2019 UCI Road World Championships due to land for nine action-packed days in September, we thought it was an opportune time to showcase our beloved landscape.
That’s why we’d like you to join us for the inaugural Eversheds Sutherland Yorkshire Sportif corporate sportive.
EVERSHEDS SUTHERLAND YORKSHIRE SPORTIF

LOCATION: Harrogate Rugby Club, Rudding Lane, Harrogate, HG3 1DQ. Getting there >>

Join us pre-ride for morning coffee and networking. Our expert mechanic will be on hand to assist with any minor mechanicals before you set out on the route. Once you've signed on and collected your number and timing chip we'll hold a safety briefing. We'll then set off in small groups, so that you can enjoy riding with other like-minded riders.
Here are our route options for the Eversheds Sutherland Yorkshire Sportive. There will be two route options, which you can sign up to on the day of the event.

We'll get the chance to test our legs against some infamous Yorkshire climbs.
Greenhow Hill featured in last year's Tour de Yorkshire and has been chosen as the major challenge for the world's best U23 riders in the Mens Under23 Road Race of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships.

We'll stop en route to refuel at our very own Feed Station. We'll grab some snacks, fill our pockets with OTE Sports nutrition and refill our water bottles ready to take on the second half of the ride.
Pre-ride bike checks will be available during the morning by our expert pro-level mechanic. We'll then be supported throughout the ride, ensuring no one suffers a mechanical failure and everyone completes the ride.
After crossing the finish line you can join us to refuel with gourmet street food vendor Harveys Sausages for homemade hotdogs and burgers and a well-deserved Yorkshire Dales ice cream. Plus the bar will be open at Harrogate Rugby Club!
