About Us

Cyclosport is run and managed by cycling fanatics. We love to see the sport grow, be professional, safe and fun. To maximize the quality of experience; we like to bring riders, organisers and sponsors together from all over the world. 

We aim to give our rapidly growing community immediate and full access to all that is happening in the cyclosportive scene globally - whether rider or organiser.

Cyclosport reports on cyclosportive events, allows users to fairly rate them and has the most comprehensive events calendar available.


Cyclosport was founded in 2003 when we were looking for a way to train and prepare for the Etape du Tour. Information on events was scarce and per chance we stumbled upon the Fred Whitton Memorial, which had its first edition in 1999 making it one of the the first sportives in the UK. (The first edition had less than 200 riders and now 10 years on is one of the top sportives with 1,000 riders).

Realising that there were some great events, but many were largely unknown, we set up Cyclosport with the aim of providing an online meeting place for riders, sponsors and organisers.

The site's usage has grown dramatically since 2003 and has become the leading global web site for cycling events for amateurs. Cyclosport.org is managed by HotChillee.

"Andy developed his sportive mania on  the Autumn Epic back in the days when 150km was a  long way for him to go.  Since then he's taken part in  numerous UK sportives and Italian Gran Fondos, and  climbed the classic cols of the Alps and Pyrenees. 

He's a qualified British Cycling coach and CTC Ride Leader and regularly reviews sportives for Cyclosport.  This has led to him getting involved in organising events and he's now planning routes and managing 3 sportives in 2016 - go to www.rideventures.co.uk for more."
