100 Mile Sportives
Each year we organise a number of annual 100 mile sportives with a timed
start and finish so riders can test their best time. Our regular 100 mile rides are held in Manchester, Cambridge, Norwich and Wiltshire and we also offer others on occasion - in 2013 we also have an Oxford 100 and Leeds 100.
100 milers are ideal for those who regularly cycle long distances and consider themselves to be fit and healthy enough to take on these testing challenges. All our rides are fully supported by medical and mechanical staff as well as pick-up teams in case you need to retire for any reason. They are also fully signed and marshalled so you can just get on and do it without stressing about following directions.
What the riders say:
forward to it, my 3rd time if you haven't been on it before it's a
lovely ride and the big surprise for all those who don't know the area
are the hills !
forward to doing it again. Did the 100 last year, doing the 50 with my
youngest lad on Sunday, it's going to be brilliant!!!
"Great day out - weather was not wet for the first year in ages. Finished in 5hrs 10, loads of people on the roads - brilliant!
"Just like to thank you guys for organising yet
another brilliant Manchester 100. It was my fourth time taking part and
i was amazed how well you coped with the extra numbers this year. Just
seen my photo on the cycle sports site. Real action pose of middle aged

big round of applause for Bike Events, Christies, all the Marshals, the
British Red Cross, the staff at the rest stops and all those who took
part! Thanks for making it a safe and great event! Excellent work.
We have quite a lively Facebook page enabling riders to interact and share information on the rides and also training tips, kit suggestions etc.
