RIDE IT Ashdown Sportive 2018

We’re returning to the National Trust’s Sheffield Park Gardens near Uckfield in East Sussex for our RIDE IT Ashdown Sportive on Saturday 8th September 2018. Not being far from the Evans Cycles HQ means it’s on home riding turf for a lot of the Evans Cycles staff so we’ve used our local knowledge to come up with a great route that takes in some well known climbs as well as some of the less well known lanes that the area has to offer.…

RIDE IT Peak District 2018

We're up in the Peaks getting ready to set out the courses for this weekends event. As we haven't been out yet I can't give you any trail conditions but there's been little rain and the drains pretty well so hopefully it'll all be dry under wheel at the weekend! As always, it's going to be a tough ride no matter which day you are signed up for but you are going to be treated to some great scenery to distract you from the pain. There's a reason this ride is 5/5 on the difficult rating.…

RIDE IT Liphook 2018

This ride is a firm favourite with staff and customers alike, and it's easy to see why; quick single track and well maintained trails dictate a good pace and the chance to clock up some exhilarating off-road miles in the Great British Summer. The route will take riders through heather lined trails and stunning woodland sections as we take a circular route around Hindhead. This ride has everything you could want: great trails, tough climbs, fast descents and beautiful scenery, and it’s why many of our riders come back year after year.…

RIDE IT Brighton 2018

Saturday MTB Rides - Starting from Plumpton College in the heart of the South Downs, we’re ideally situated for a great day in the saddle. Straight away we head up, climbing to an impressive ridge line above the valley. Quick descents and zig-zag climbs follow as we head towards Devils Dyke and Truleigh Hill. After refuelling at the YHA we’re back onto the South Downs Way heading back towards event HQ. As the event centre nears, Long and Endurance riders continue past towards Lewes. More ups and downs follow as we navigate the trails around Balmer Down and Woodingdean. Those taking on the Endurance distance branch off at the 35 mile mark to enjoy a long descent to the coast. A challenging ascent awaits both Long and Endurance riders, before a deserved descent to the finish.…

RIDE IT Lanark Sportive 2018

Now in it's third year and always a popular ride which sees us heading back for another visit to the Scottish Borders with our RIDE IT Lanark Sportive on Sunday 29th July. The rides offer some amazing scenery with big views across the hills and give you the real sense of getting away from civilization for a few miles. In terms of difficulty there is plenty of elevation gain on the longer rides but it tends to be long gradual ascents rather than short and steep and often you're too busy looking at the views to realise you've been riding up hill!…

The Cheshire 100 Sportive

Starting from the grounds of the Arley Hall Estate the 100km route winds its way through country lanes on the Cheshire Plains passing both Dunham Massey Deer Park and Tatton Park along the way before returning back to the finish. For riders looking for more of a challenge the 100 mile route is not only longer but heads for some more challenging terrain on the edge of the Peak District. There’s a chance to test your legs as we climb up through Macclesfield Forest before starting to head back past Alderley Edge and then a relatively fast and flat run in across the Cheshire Plains to the finish. …
