For the more experienced and progressing riders, there are the medium and long routes available, all fully signed, easy to follow routes with feed stops along the way. We do recommend that you have a decent level of experience to tackle the 100 mile route as it isn’t something to be undertaken lightly although still achievable in this early season event.
The Newark Castle Sportive replaces what was originally the King Edward Sportive, which took place at the Showground originally. We wanted everyone to enjoy the heritage of Newark by starting and finishing the ride in the shadow of Newark Castle itself, by working alongside the team at Newark and Sherwood Council we bring a community event into the town for all to enjoy with a great atmosphere.
After finishing the event, collect your medal and chill out for a while by the riverside, grab a beer, pizza and just soak of the atmosphere.
As with all of our events there will be free photos to download from Adie, our event photographer.
