Welcome to Cycling Weekly‘s 2009 British cyclo-sportive calendar.

Cyclo-sportives and challenge rides are continuing to boom in the UK, with more events than ever on the calendar. There’s something for everyone here, ranging from rides covering less than 20 miles to multi-day spectaculars taking in over 500 miles.

In the list below we’ve included every cyclo-sportive and challenge ride we can find, plus a number of other events of a slightly different nature that might appeal to the ‘sportiviste’.

We’ve covered as many events as possible but no doubt new events and details will spring up through the year.

Keep checking back for further updates.

Have we missed anything out? Let us know by emailing us at cycling@ipcmedia.com.


If you’re looking for a charity ride, then we’ve listed them in a separate charity rides 2009 calendar. You can also find reviews of many UK rides and cyclo-sportives in our extensive online Rides section.
