A great event open to cycle sportive enthusiasts looking for something shorter and occasionally furious on the climbs!

The Back O’Skiddaw 70KM sportive is graded as 2 out of 5 in the British Cycling sportive grading system, making it a moderately hilly half-day road ride in the Lake District! This ride has approximately 650 metres of ascent with an expected completion time of between 2.5 and 5 hours.

The course is fully tarmac, ranging from steeply undulating narrow single track, gated farm roads, to the quieter B and A roads in the area. If you’re new to cycling events then this is a great place to start but this sportive can also be enjoyed by cycling enthusiasts looking for something shorter and occasionally furious on the climbs!
