We just love riding in sportive events because not only do you have the ability to hone your skills and push your training, but it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet amazing people and share an exciting experience together.
Unlike many sportives in the UK, the RIDE IT series from Evans Cycles goes beyond the one-off summer specials and runs throughout the year. With a wealth of both road and mountain bike events across the UK, the RIDE IT series is certainly the one to enter if it’s your first sportive or if you’re looking to meet other cyclists and of course, if you’re looking to have a brilliant day out on the bike.
Although women’s participation in cycling sportives is growing, there’s always room to boost the numbers further to really level out the gender playing field. So what better way to do this than to enter a sportive yourself. Here are a few reasons why the RIDE IT series is perfect for beginners, seasoned riders, family and total bike novices.
Sportives aren’t competitive events but that that doesn’t mean you can’t set yourself a challenge. With a number of different distances to choose from for each event, not only can you choose a distance to train for, but a time you want to achieve it in.
