The Flat 100 was voted the Best Road Cycling event in the 2019 Let’s Do This Endurance award, limited to just 800 places, make sure you book early to guarantee your place – it always sells out before the day!

The Flat 100 Sportive is perfect for riders of all abilities from an absolute beginner who has never taken part in a cycling event through to regular cyclists who always look to come back every year and match or improve their ride times from previous years! If you are taking on the Flat 100 as an absolute beginner, we’d like to let you know that you don’t need a particular bike, special clothing or anything to take part, just a desire to challenge yourself in a safe environment – all of the routes are fully signed, there’s a food stop half way round with everything you could need included, an emergency contact number if you need any mechanical help and other riders around should you need advice or someone to ride with. Many people use the Flat 100 as their first cycling event and do it as a sponsored bike ride for one of the local charities. Booking something early gives you an aim for the year ahead!

Those that know the event are in for a surprise this year, we have been working closely with the local authorities and have agreed a new route for 2022 that we feel will improve the event dramatically, mainly left hand turns early on, making things easier but still the same flat profile.

If you are attempting the 100 mile route for the first time please make sure that you have got the training in and are able to maintain an average speed of 13mph + for the duration of the course, as well as duty of care to you the participants, we also have a duty of care in place for the volunteers on the day.

We took on board a lot of the comments from the 2021 event that you all loved the postal registration and the allocated start times as it meant no queuing on the day itself. We have arranged for start slots of 20 riders every three minutes so be sure to book early to guarantee the start slot that you want.

Online Entry Closes 23:59 pm 3rd June. Before entering any of our events,
Please read our Sportive Rules, Terms & Conditions

ENTRY FEE: £40.00

Well organised, fun experience for a novice, friendly helpful staff who were knowledgeable but not pushy.

John B. Did the 65 Mile in 2019

Jayne s. Did the 100 Mile in 2019

This was my first century ride and also my first sportive event, I found it to be very well organised and it really put me at ease with all the support there right the way through. The food stations were excellent, providing very good facilities and the vegetable tikka wraps were lovely too. I am not very good with hills and this was a perfect flat route. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend.
