Get on your bike to snap up Stockton Sportive places

Friday, June 26, 2015


Time is running out to claim a place on a choice of three Stockton Endeavour Sportive rides setting off from Stockton.

Budding competitors have until Sunday 5 July to confirm their registration by visiting or calling 01642 524598.

The Sportive, now in its fifth year, is growing in popularity each year and treats entrants to a range of stunning scenic views as the route travels across various locations around Stockton Borough and the North Yorkshire Moors.

A choice of rides is available, each with varying distances to suit the abilities of all riders and all come with a Tour de France style motorcycle escorted start – giving riders the opportunity to get underway free from traffic while feeling like a star of the sport.

Councillor Norma Wilburn, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: “We have a superb programme of events for everyone to enjoy as part of this year’s Cycling Festival and the Stockton Endeavour Sportive is a key part of that.

“It offers everyone, regardless of their ability, a chance to set themselves a fitness goal this summer and it represents a really competitive challenge for the more experienced riders.

“I would encourage anyone interested to get involved as they are guaranteed an enjoyable day and a very rewarding experience while making new friends and improving their fitness along the way.”

Over 500 riders took part last year so advance booking is advised – with prices ranging from £15 to £25 depending on the route chosen:

  • Short Sport – 36.2 miles – two to four hours ride time - £15 entry
  • Short Challenge – 36.9 miles – two to four hours ride time – £15 entry
  • Medium – 58 miles – five to seven hours ride time - £25 entry
  • Le Tour de Moor – 108 miles – seven to ten hours ride time - £25 entry

All entrants will receive a detailed information pack in advance of the day, which provides all the necessary advice on what to bring and what to expect.

The event is run in partnership between Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and Velo29.

For further details and to book a place, visit or call 01642 524598.
