Well done to all our 2017 riders! Click here for your ride time

A fun, non-competitive cycle event and fun day

** Our ride is now closed and we cannot accept entries on the day but please do come and join us for our family fun day – the more the merrier! **

Grab your helmets and handlebars, because it’s time to prepare for the 2017 Humber Bridge Sportive! Our sportive is a fun, non-competitive cycle event open to everyone. With 3 riveting routes to choose from, we promise to take you where no other sportive can – across the iconic Humber Bridge! 

But we’re not just about raising heart rates. Since we set off in 2013 we’ve raised over £20,000 for local charities with the generous help of our partners and sponsors. This year, we’re supporting The Ellie Penrose Fund, a wonderful charity providing support for young people aged 21 and under who wish to participate in sport, but lack the finance to do so.

If you fancy taking part and want to know more, we’re more than happy to help. We can even assist with the structuring of your training programme – so you’ve got no excuse! You’ll find all the information you need on our website or social media, where we’ll be posting regular updates, news, and information. On the day of the sportive, we’ll be based at Hesslewood Country Office Park in Hessle, where there’ll be lots of other activities happening too – fun for all the family!

So, whether you’re a budding Bradley Wiggins, a lycra lover or you just fancy a pleasant pedal, we’d love you to come along for the ride. We’re raring to go – are you?

Great ride out today Syd, many thanks for all your hard work! It gets better and better each year!!

Thanks for another great Humber bridge sportive! So much effort is put into this event and it’s very much appreciated…

Great event, well organised and signed, and a massive thank you to the marshals. Best feed stop ever on the long route, the volunteers there were fantastic and so was the food

Thanks for a great well organised event and a huge thank you for helping my husband when he had a puncture and split tyre – he finished the long ride! Oh – and he asked me to say a thank you for the quality feed stations too. Hope you got rid of all the bananas!!!

This was my first sportive, was a great ride well signed and a credit to all who organised it. I timed myself at under 2 hours, not bad for someone wrong side of 50 Might even go for long ride next year

My first ever sportive…Had a great ride, thanks for the excellent hospitality!

Whilst I’m sure you are still very busy today, I nonetheless wanted to get in touch to say a huge thanks to you and all your team for today, I can only begin to imagine the level of organisation, hard work and planning that goes in pre/during and post event to enable today to happen, I had the easiest job of all by just turning up and riding as things ran so smoothly, so thank you!

What a fantastic day and great weather was ordered for the day which was certainly delivered. Thanks to all involved with the organisation of this event, truly amazing. Can’t wait to do it again next year.

An excellent day, organised outstandingly! Well done guys, you certainly created memories for a lot of the children and adults alike

The commemorative cycling jerseys were a great idea, it gave the event a real team spirit.

The volunteers were wonderful, applauding every rider to drop in. Thank you for that special push into the home straight

I didn’t hear anyone moaning, they only had words of praise. Well done and congratulations on a successful event!

A huge thank you to all those who gave up their precious time to volunteer at this event it was amazing

You were amazing ladies! The encouragement on arrival, the lovely cold water, plenty of food options and smiling faces. Thank you, it’s much appreciated – especially in this heat!

Thank you to all who have organised this ride. It was fantastic, a lovely route, so well organised. The flapjack was top, and you even thought of sunscreen.
