Eversheds Sutherland Yorkshire Sportif - Corporate Sportive

Regular price £0

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.

PRE-RIDE

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.

CLIMB CHALLENGE
