Sportives and audaxes are some of the favourite events in the cycling annual calendar. Although the event selection is a very personal choice, we have selected a few that are hugely popular with the chaser community, as it would be added fun to put a group together to ride the event with.
Whether you are competitive and chasing a podium finish - as our own Ian Corrie did in the Tour of Wessex last year - or simply want to enjoy a day out on your bike or a short holiday, sportives provide organisation and support to make the event a safe and enjoyable experience.
Some offer closed roads, such as Ride London 100. Most offer timed results, finisher medals, en-route feed stations... Everything so that you only have to worry about pushing your pedals.
