The Routes


Ride HQ - what's on and how to find us

Ride HQ, at Englefield Primary School, will be a perfect place for your family and supporters to base themselves during the cycle. We’ll have:

  • Refreshments for sale

Parking: Parking will be available in a field, off of The Street, close to Englefield School. For Satnavs please use postcode RG7 5HA and look for signs as you approach your destination. Please do not park on The Street itself, as we have neighbours to consider

Getting Sponsored

The Ufton Cycle Sportive is a charity cycle ride which aims to raise money for the disadvantaged children who visit Ufton Adventure. The entry fee covers the cost of holding the event, therefore to truly make a difference, we would love our participants to do some fundraising of their own (not compulsory).
