Flutter Sportive 2024

Regular price £35

You are officially invited to the flutter x cure leukaemia charity sportive

Our annual cycling sportive is back, and this time it’s in Harrogate! We’re so excited to invite you for a day of exploring Yorkshire by bike, while raising money for our UK Charity of the Year, Cure Leukaemia. 

Your base for the day will be the fabulous setting of Cedar Court Hotel in Harrogate. When you’re out and about, you’ll enjoy the best of Yorkshire’s quiet countryside cycling roads. With four different routes to choose from, we’re encouraging everyone (no matter your ability or experience!) to join in.

DATE: Thursday 19th September 2024

TIME: Coffee and pastries will be available at the venue from 8:30am. The ride starts at 9:30am. Event finishes officially at 4pm but riders will arrive back at the hotel in their own time.

LOCATION: Cedar Court Hotel, Park Parade, off Knaresborough Road, Harrogate, HG1 5AH



Pre-ride, you’ll be at the Cedar Court Hotel for coffee and pastries. An expert mechanic will be on hand to assist with any minor mechanicals before you set out on the route.

You’ll then set off in small groups with ride leaders, who will manage the pace and direct the route, so you can relax and enjoy the Yorkshire countryside. 

There will be en route stops to refuel at our very own Feed Station, where you’ll grab some snacks, fill your pockets with sports nutrition and refill your water bottles ready to take on the second half of the ride.  

After the ride, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy a well-earned lunch back at Cedar Court while sharing stories of the ride. We'll return back to Cedar Court in staggered groups, where a post-ride burger will be awaiting you. 



As always, all the money raised through ticket sales and fundraising goes straight to charity. 

This year, you’ll be riding to help Cure Leukaemia. Every 14 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every penny raised by us will help to save lives and to move the dial on the eradication of all forms of blood cancer.  

We ask that all riders take part on a sponsored basis and raise a minimum of £100 for Cure Leukaemia. You can do this by setting up a page in Just Giving. Please share with page with Daisy Smith once you have set it up. 

It feels good to do good, so we hope that the charity element will only make the day more enjoyable for you all!




Please let Daisy Smith know by 12.08.24 if you have any dietary requirements, so that we can cater for them properly on the day.
