The Spring Classic Sportive


The Spring Classic is part of our No Frills Series which is a low cost event to get you out on your bike ready for the Summer Sportives or in shape for your big challenge.


This event has sold out in the previous two years so please don't leave it too late to book up.


The 8 mile route is back after it's introduction  in 2018. This is perfect for new riders or families.


The 25  mile routes are designed as a figure of 8. Loops of 25 miles in two directions using the Start / Finish as the Feed-Zone. Choose from 25 / 50 / 75 or 100 miles.


The route has been chosen to be free flowing and take in some beautiful countryside around the village of Swanton Morley. There is even a surprise on the the 2nd loop with 2 miles to go.......


The Spring Classic loops will head east and west from the event centre. The Autumn Classic Sportive goes North and South.


What you get:

Full route signing, finishers medal, small feed-zone with water, energy drink, bananas, sweets and biscuits. Mechanical support.


Optional extras:

  • Car-parking at the event centre will cost £2.00 per car on the gate.
  • Teas and coffees, (chargeable)
  • Extra food at the feed-zone/event centre such as Paninis, sandwiches, chocolate bars, crisps and home made cakes (chargeable)
  • Swanton Morley Village Hall will be opening the bar from 12pm providing post ride drinks.

Reviews from 2018:


  1. "Hello, just wanted to say a big thank you for today's excellently organised and friendly event. So many lovely people making it a very nice Sunday ride. Food and drink much appreciated. Best sportive of the year so far! "
  2.   "Great event again. So much better value than many I won’t name. Great route signs, food/drink stop and medal, what more do you need?
  3. Thanks for organising the family ride, my daughter loved it and was made to feel part of the event by many of the other riders. Her medal is off to school and brownies as she is so proud!! "
  4. "Great event, very well organised, the marking of the pot holes (Trenches!) made all the difference, going that extra mile to keep the riders safe, well done"
  5. "Great day, great pedalling country, excellent signage and food stop"
  6. " Spring Classic Family Ride was fantastic, really nice route, which had very minimal traffic. Great medal at the finish and very well organised. It was the longest ride to date for my 5yr old son and he loved it, especially as a picture of us was used on the email for the link to this years pictures! Bring on the Round Norfolk Epic!"
  7. "Thank you to all the organisers and helpers for today’s Spring Classic. Marking out the pot holes was above and beyond. Excellent sportives."
