About the event

The Sporting Ride is the fastest of the group rides, covering the longest distance (and hence a greater elevation). This ride is perfect for strong triathletes, half and full ironman athletes and riders with a high level of strength and fitness who want to put in some strong shared training sessions.

Ride Details

Good weather distance: 45 to 80 miles (72 to 130 km) - sometimes further

Poor weather distance: 40 to 60 miles (64 to 100 km) - sometimes further

Pace: 19 to 21.5 mph (30.5 to 34.5 kph)

This ride, due to its nature, has a good deal of flexibility but will still be setup to benefit all the riders in the group, with a focus on tight, fast group riding. In general the Sporting Ride is also a “no-drop” ride like all others, but the group may deviate from this on the day, with agreement from riders (e.g. group may split and reconvene at coffee stop, or riders may be dropped in the last 5-10 miles, when they are close to home). Riding in close formation at these increased speeds, over long distances, introduces a greater level of risk. Therefore, new riders joining this group can expect support and feedback from fellow riders, to help their safe transition.

This event has a group. You’re welcome to join the group once you register for the event.
