Selby will host its first ever Sportive on the 1st September with cyclists of all abilities taking part in this fantastic event. There will be three on-road routes of 25, 60 and 90 miles plus a shorter route for children and young people so all the family can participate. The event is non-competitive, however full electronic timing will be provided for those wishing to test themselves against the clock. The routes will be fully signposted with marshalls on key junctions and will include support vehicles, feed stations and goodie bags for every participant.

The event is being organised in partnership with Selby Sport Development (WLCT), Selby Cycling Club, British Cycling and Yorkshire Cancer Research to which a percentage of profilts from the event will be donated.

James Chapman (Sports Development Coordinator) commented "Sportives are becoming increasingly popular across the country as a way of encouraging people to take up cycling as a means of keeping fit and enjoying the great outdoors. We are really excited about this new venture and look forward to seeing many people taking part on the day and taking up cycling".

Chris Amor (Selby Cycling Club Marketing & PR Officer) said: "We're really excited about Selby's first ever Sportive and are looking forward to seeing cyclists new and old enjoying the fantastic riding and great facilities on offer in Selby and along the routes. Our club has experienced amazing growth in recent years, allowing us to play our part in organising this flagship event which we hope will encourage even more people to get into cycling and to join the club"
