RNRMCA Riders have competed in many sportives since 2007. Some great results were obtained at home and abroad with riders competing in the Etape Du Tour, Dartmoor Classic, Dragon Ride and Exmoor Challenge to name a few. A Sportive challenge is generally a mid-long distance road ride with the aim of finishing in the fastest time possible, or for some just finishing!!!

The sport is growing in popularity each year with some likening the challenge to completing a marathon (as a runner) and we have all wanted to do that at some point in our life. So keep your eyes and ears open for 2016 as it is going to be a bumper year for participation in cycling events from the club and Sportive riding might be just what you are looking for. If you joined the club to do a charity ride then this is right up your street why not use a sportive as your next fundraiser?
