Great Yarmouth Cycle Sportive – 19th March 2022

Great Yarmouth Cycle Sportive


No matter if you are in training for a summer triathlon, want to set yourself a cycling challenge, or just simply fancy an organised bike ride in one of the most beautiful parts of England, join us for the Great Yarmouth Cycle Sportive this Spring.

With distances varying from 30km up to 120km, there is something for everyone on two wheels. With fully signposted routes, chip-timing, downloadable gpx files, a bike mechanic en-route and feed stations on the way, this is a great way to explore the countryside of Norfolk.

The course starts on the seafront and winds its way northwards up the coast before turning inland and returning through the broads.

This event forms part of the Great Yarmouth Endurance weekend with a Half-marathon and 10km run on Sunday 20th March, for those who wish to tackle both and collect two unique medals that join together.

You can purchase an event T-Shirt as a memento of the day for just £10!
