Newark Castle Sportive returns for 2024. 

We are looking for cyclists to be one of our CBC charity riders, to help raise vital funds for the Children's Bereavement Centre. 

Newark Castle Sportive HQ on Sunday 12th May, 2024 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. Take part in a sponsored bike ride, contact Katie for a free charity place.
  • 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.

We have free* charity places. If you are interested in taking part for us please email Katie 

*minimum sponsorship £50. Raise £150 and we will give you a free branded t-shirt to ride in at the event.
