Following on from the successes of the our first and second cycle sportives, incorporating the iconic Humber Bridge, which is still the longest suspension bridge in the world to allow cyclists and pedestrians to cross it – we are pleased to have set a date for the 2016 Sportive!
The third Humber Bridge Sportive will be held on 12th June 2016!
Pre-ride refreshments will be available and there will be 2 well stocked feed stations, together with a voucher for refreshments upon completion of the ride!

The Humber Bridge Sportive is pleased to announce an exciting new link with "Cycle4Life Challenge" – an initiative sponsored by East Yorkshire Public Health, with the aim of encouraging both children and adults to take up cycling. Viking FM and the Street Team will be broadcasting live from the event, and a series of exciting, free cycling related activities will be available to try out at the venue during the day. More details can be found on our Cycle4Life Challenge page.

There will be a dedicated pathway for cyclists on the way out, and on the return. The 2 routes of 21 and 61 miles, will take in the quiet roads of North Lincs, offering spectacular views across to Lincoln Cathedral and over the Humber estuary.
The longer route will head towards the market town of Caistor, before tracking down to the river Humber, and then return to cross the Humber Bridge via Goxhill and Barton.
