Looking for a new cycling challenge? Then try to add these cycling sportives to do for a future challenge.
Going out every day on the bike for a ride is great but where do you actually test the fitness and leg work you've built up month after month. It's always good to have target while you train and competing in a cycling sportive is the perfect non-competitive way of putting that energy to use. You'll have to pay to enter of course but with this you'll get an organised event and get to discover new roads and places. Here's our selection of very best sportives you can do in Europe.
Turn a wonderful dream into reality by setting out on your bike at dawn in the shadow of the Colosseum in the heart of the Eternal City. Ride through the breathtaking centre of Rome, and out into the beautiful landscape of the Castelli Romani hills, as you complete 120km and 2000 metres of climbing with closed roads through 2.700 years of the History of the world, before returning to a glorious finish on the Appian Way.
If you want to live this unique experience, don’t miss CAMPAGNOLO ROMA, which takes place on 14 October 2018.
Places are limited, so be sure to register soon if you’d like to be on the most exciting start line in the world next May.
