Hi my name is Vicky Howse and I'm from Triology Events.  Michelle and I organise triathlon events at Ellerton Park near Scorton.  We are award winning multi-sport & events across the North East & Yorkshire, this year we have branched out to organise a sportive.

As this is our first sportive we would be very grateful if you could either forward this on to your club members or mention us in the next newsletter or Facebook, to make people aware of this new event to the calendar.

The event is being organised and delivered in accordance with British Cycling, the National Governing Body of cycling.  The event is on the Bank Holiday Good Friday 14th April 2017, there are two routes available;

  • The Short Good Friday: 85km (53miles)

  • The Long Good Friday: 148km (95 miles)

    All riders will receive a warm drink and hot cross bun at the finish line.

    In addition, Good Friday will see us host a family fun filled day of cycling themed activities, keeping the children entertained with a cycle Easter Egg Hunt whilst the adults take part in one of two distances.

    Maps of the routes can be found on our website uk/events/cycle-sportive- childrens-easter-egg-hunt/  and links to enter via the British Cycling website.

    Thank you for your time and we hope to see some of your members in their kit representing the club.  If anyone has any questions they can email me at or contact me on 07756 565372.

    Thanks again for your support.

    Vicky & Michelle
