The first ever University of Bradford Cycle Sportive, 50 miles for 50 years, will take place on Sunday 25th September as part of the university’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. This is both an urban and rural Sportive which includes parts of the 2014 Tour de France and the 2015 Tour de Yorkshire routes. The event is being run by the University in partnership with British Cycling and Cycling 4 All.
The Sportive, which is a non-competitive event, will be a fun, social and challenging occasion and will also provide the opportunity to raise funds for the 50th Anniversary Scholarship Appeal. The appeal is to raise funds for UK based foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships for outstanding students most in need.
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.
We would be delighted if you could participate in this exciting 50th Anniversary event. Register now.
