Now in its sixth year, The Heart of the Wolds Cycle Sportive is now established as one of the best cycle sportives in Yorkshire.

Starting off from the historic market town of Driffield, all the routes take in the unrivalled scenery of the Yorkshire Wolds. This year’s event takes place on Sunday 22 April 2018.

This year sees the introduction of our ‘Centurion’ ride, aimed at those riders who want to push themselves to the limit. This 100 mile (161km) ride joins our 3 established rides (37km / 100km / 134km) which previous entrants will be familiar with and which offer something for each level of cyclist, from beginner looking to get into cycling to a regular rider looking for their next challenge.
