On Sunday 12th May, Newark Castle Sportive returned for 2024...

Eight cyclists signed up to be charity riders in the Newark Castle Sportive HQ, to help raise vital funds for the Children's Bereavement Centre. 

Collectively, the riders raised an amazing £2311 for taking on the 60 mile or 100 mile route. Thank you to Vince, Paul, Simon, Paul, Simon, Claudette, John, Andrew, Rob for being our charity cyclists, our fundraising team loved cheering you on. You can view photos from the day here. 

This brilliant sportive event is suitable able for everyone, regardless of cycling background and type of cycle.

There are 3 routes to suit all abilities:

  • For new riders: enjoy a day out on whatever bike you have in the safety of an environment, with a fully signed 34 mile route, mechanics should you have a problem, medics and a half way feed stop, no time limit and a phone number to call should you have a problem. 
  • For the more experienced and progressing riders: medium (62 miles) and long (104 miles) routes, all fully signed, easy to follow routes with feed stops along the way. We do recommend that you have a decent level of experience to tackle the 100 mile route as it isn’t something to be undertaken lightly although still achievable in this early season event.

Enjoy the heritage of Newark by starting and finishing the ride in Newark Castle itself, by working alongside the team at Newark and Sherwood Council we bring a community event into the town for all to enjoy with a great atmosphere.

After finishing the event, collect your medal and chill out for a while by the riverside, grab a beer, pizza and just soak of the atmosphere.

Thank you to Sportive HQ for inviting us to be part of this event.
