Sportives are mass-participation cycling events over a variety of distances, usually on the road and over the course of a single day. They're typically well sign-posted with feeding stations and mechanical support along the route. If you're looking for a well-organised ride that offers a similar experience to a major running event, a sportive is your answer! These rides are between 70 and over 150 miles in distance.
