At RIDE IT events there is a ride for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned cycling pro or an amateur rider looking to get in to social riding, we offer different route lengths to choose from.
 
We know that cycling is a great way to spend quality time with the family and have fun outdoors. That is why we offer Fun route rides which are a little bit shorter for younger riders and parents to take part in RIDE IT

Sportive:
 
Fun Route:
An introduction to road riding designed for the whole family to enjoy. It has minimal climbing and takes place on quieter roads.
 
Short Route:
The Short route is an ideal starting point for the casual rider or the commuter who wants to spend some leisure time on their bike. Hybrid bikes and mountain bikes with slick tyres are welcome!
 
Medium Route:
The medium route provides a good workout in the saddle for the experienced cyclist. This is the perfect distance to integrate the ride into your training schedule and work your way up to the long distance route.
 
Long Route:
Designed to challenge riders, this 80-mile plus (70 miles for winter rides) route will test your fitness and stamina while providing an enjoyable day out with like-minded cyclists.
 
Mountain Bike:
 
Short Route:
The Short route is designed for those who are new to mountain biking or want to build up their fitness before tackling longer routes. The route involves climbing and descending including some challenging terrain and should usually take no more than 2 hours. Climbing is limited and riders will be able to ride most of the course, novice riders may need to dismount and walk their bike through some challenging sections.

Medium Route:
This is our most popular route. It is designed for the riders that want to challenge themselves and spend a few hours in the saddle. The route is suitable for those with off-road experience and a reasonable level of fitness and normally takes between 3 to 5 hours.

Long Route
Fancy a little bit more? The long route adds another 5-8miles distance to the medium route, which means you’ll be out in the countryside longer for more great riding. If you’ve entered the medium but are still feeling fresh at the split, go on and complete the long route. Just remember to tell the us at the finish!
