VO2 Sportive Series

About the VO2 Sportive Series

VO2 Sportive

New for 2017, the V02 Sportive Series combines all three of our events into one season long challenge. 

Starting with the V02 Sportive in March you’ll explore some of the best cycling in Kent.  Take on killer climbs and fast descents as you put your winter training to the test. 

Next, head to the coast in May with a start line amongst the Lions and Rhinos of Port Lympne Reserve. Don’t be fooled by the fast flat miles across the marshes, as the course soon starts rolling with a few hills to test the legs. 

The final leg of the series takes you to the iconic racecourse of Lingfield in October for a rolling route across the High Weald.

VO2 Sportive Series Charity Partner

We're pleased to be supporting the Brooke, with £5 from every entry to the VO2 Sportive Series going to the charity.  Brooke is an international animal welfare charity working to improve the lives of working horses, donkeys, mules and the people who depend on them.

Their fantastic volunteers will be with us at each round of the series, helping us marshall the course.  Without them we couldn't run our events, so smile, wave, and say thank you as you ride past them! 

Find out more about this fantastic charity on their website.
