Entry For The Nidderdale Sportive 2014 Now Open

by Nick Gregory

Entry for the Nidderdale Sportive, taking place on 30th March 2014 is now open, and detail of how to register can be found HERE.

The Nidderdale Sportive is a classic sportive that takes in some of the best climbs in North Yorkshire, including some of those chosen for the route of the 2014 Tour De France. Check out the Grand Départ video below to get a better idea of what awaits...

You have a choice of an 85 mile route with over 8000ft of climbing, or a smaller, but still a challenging, 65 mile route with 6000ft of climbing including Lofthouse, Coverdale, Parkrash, and Malham Cove. Both routes are classic routes in their own right, and we guarantee you will not be disappointed. 


Functional Fitness Events prides itself on marking the route exceptionally well and providing high quality refreshments during the event. The feed stations will be stocked with sandwiches, cakes, fresh fruit and energy gels, amongst other things. In addition to this all riders will be treated to a traditional pork pie (supplied by Balsdon's butchers Summerbridge) and mushy peas after the ride.


After the popularity of the free photography during the last Sportive, Sports Sunday Photography will again be providing a photographer for the March event.

One not to be missed.
