What is the Sportive D'Scarborough?
The Sportive D'Scarborough is a cyclosportive, or sportive for short. Sportives are long distance, organised, on-road cycling events, which involve completing a set route. Sportive events typically range from 50 to 150 miles and run all year round. Sportive routes usually take in the most challenging roads in their area, with long, steep climbs and descents, testing all-round bike riding skills rather than flat out speed. A typical Sportive might include transponder timing, generous feed-stations, breakdown recovery and a fully signed route, with GPS downloads available. Many events have multiple route options, meaning that the whole event is attractive to a wide range of riders.

Is it a race?
A sportive is not a race. The event takes place on public roads that will not be closed to traffic. You must obey the highway code and the law at all times.

Who can enter?
Anyone can enter the Sportive D'Scarborough provided they are over 16 years of age. The event is open to riders of all abilities from those looking to challenge themselves for the first time over some of the most scenic roads in Britain to seasoned riders looking for a fully supported great ride out.

Where does the ride go?
The Sportive D'Scarborough rides are completely on-road around the lanes and roads of the Yorkshire Wolds and villages of Hunmanby, Weaverthorpe, Thwing, Burton Fleming and Kilham.

Do I need a map and to find my own way round?
The routes will be fully signed and there will be static and marshals en-route. However, signs can be vandalised, come loose or be lost and ultimately it is your own responsibility to find your way around the course.

Where do I find my event numbers information pack?
Registration will open on the morning of the event. At registration you will be given your event number and a route card / route map
