Sportive HQ’s cycling events are becoming legendary, riders that ‘know’ our events understand why they sell out so quick, don’t miss out on the latest instalment, the King Edward 100!

The King Edward 100 – named after the King Edward the Elder, who established the Saxon Manor house in Newark, in the 11th Century, later to become the site of Newark Castle is a classic choice of routes for another of Sportive HQ’s great value sportives. With fantastic HQ location less than 5 minutes from the A1 it’s easy to get to from many directions!

Having some of the quietest roads we have ever seen, we wanted to share with you some fantastic riding along these lanes around North Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. A few hills early on in the ride followed by some long straight flats into some of the most scenic villages Ancaster, Folkingham and Heckington to name but a few. On the longer routes you don’t have to confirm your distance until after the feed station, so see how you feel on the day, no pressure.

There will be free photos to download from Adie’s Photography, a top local cycling photographer.

We hope that after you’ve tried the King Edward 100, you’ll be hooked on our value for money sportives where a great day out on the bike is all that matters.

Let everyone know you're going!

At Sportive HQ, we never felt that medals and merchandise was necessary, just great quality rides at the right price but some people always said they would like a medal or something to remember the day with so we added these as options.
Our principal on this is not to charge a high price and give people free merchandise that they didn’t always want but to give you guys the choice.
So when you enter, you get to choose either the straight forward great value ride, or add a Medal, Giraffe Headwear, a tech t-shirt, a mug, a cycling jersey or the VIP Pack that includes medal, Giraffe Headwear and the Tech T-Shirt.
All of the merchandise is of the highest quality, like our rides and stuff that we ourselves use every day. The Giraffe Headwear is great in hot or cold weather, the tech t-shirts are what I use when on the turbo and the D2D Cycling Jerseys are what I ride in every day.
This choose what you want policy is what has helped up achieve our zero waste policy helping us to be an environmentally friendly company.
