The University of Bradford has launched its first ever Cycle Sportive, 50 miles/kms for 50 years. The Sportive is a non-competitive, recreational, urban-rural cycle challenge to raise funds for the 50th Anniversary Scholarship Appeal at the University of Bradford, and is being run in partnership with Cycling 4 All and British Cycling.

There is a choice of two routes:

  • The first is a 50-mile challenging entry level Sportive suitable for keen cyclists and those who have completed some training to prepare for the challenge. This route includes parts of the 2014 Tour de France and the 2015 Tour de Yorkshire routes.
  • The alternative route is an easier 50-kilometre challenge with fewer hills, suitable for all cycling enthusiasts who have completed some basic training in preparation for the challenge. If this is your first time to attempt a Sportive, lead riders will be available to escort groups.
