Ufton Cycle Sportive

Saturday 29th September 2018

55 miles scenic route | 25 miles family route

The Ufton Cycle Sportive 2018 will be bigger and better than ever. As well as two new routes we have some fun activities at Ride HQ to keep everyone entertained.

Starting from the exclusive Englefield Estate, we’ve got two brand new routes to tempt pros and families alike, while taking in some of the finest scenery that West Berkshire has to offer.

This year, all profits raised from participation and sponsorship will help us to fund a Viking Longhouse at Ufton Adventure.

Getting Sponsored

The Ufton Cycle Sportive is a charity cycle ride which aims to raise money for the disadvantaged children who visit Ufton Adventure. We desperately need a new woodland teaching space, particularly in the evenings and during wet weather. Costing £790,000, we have planning permission to build a Viking Longhouse in our woodlands.

The top fundraisers will win one of our fantastic prizes.

You can either be in the running to win one of our prizes by setting up your own fundraiser page, or send the link to our MyDonate event page to your friends and family so that they can donate directly to the event.
