Riding in a charity bike ride is a life-affirming experience and, with cycling's popularity in the UK at an all-time high, there's a wide range of events to choose from and new routes to discover.
Many of the sportives provide a challenging day out - either in terms of distance or the climbing involved - but there are plenty of easier options, so there's something for everyone, whatever your age, ability or cycling experience.
And you'll be riding alongside like-minded cyclists, sharing in the adventure and enjoying a well-signed route - sometimes on completely traffic-free roads - while raising funds for a worthy charitable cause.
Beforehand you'll often get help with your training and fundraising while the day itself is likely to feature mechanical assistance if required, feed and drink stations, chip timing and more.
But each ride is different so browse what's on offer and find the one which has the most appeal.
