What is a Sportive?

Sportives are long distance organised events, the cycling equivalent of running the marathon, which involve completing a set route. See link to Cycling ireland Events Calendar.

The Cycling Ireland Leisure Commission is the voice for all C.I. leisure members.

It’s mission, is to promote cycling as a lifelong activity which benefits member’s mental and physical health through the continued development of leisure membership of Cycling Ireland.

Sportive events typically range from anywhere between 50 kms and 150 kms and, although at their most popular in summer, there are events run all year round.
