Ronde Van Calderdale 2015

Cycle Sportive , Liversedge – Sunday, 05 Apr 2015

Entry powered by British Cycling
Registered Sportive

Event Summary

Event Overview

This is the 4th running of the Ronde Van Calderdale (RVC) and after riding the 2013 event, a representative from British Cycling asked if the Ronde Van Calderdale is the toughest sportive in Britain? If you want to find out, enter the event.

The  2015 event will again feature two ride lengths. The shorter ride will be 35-37 miles, with 10 very testing climbs on both cobbles and Tarmac road sections in and around Calderdale with the longer route featuring 13 significant climbs on the 72 mile route to test the skills, stamina and endurance of every rider, with great scenery along the way. These are routes that have brought riders back each year along with their buddies where riders stop and cheer each other up climbs, then remount and hit the next climbs to keep the camaraderie going.

The entry fee will include a rully signage route, feed stations en route and changing facilities at Spen Valley Sport College. Some on-site parking is available, or park nearby and ride to the Sports College. Refreshments will be available before and after the event at extra cost from outside caterers.

The event will have around 300 signs to keep people en-route, before and after each junction.

This is a unique event in the UK sportive calendar, and all proceeds go to help develop riders from Kirklees Cycling Academy. Five of our riders, all members of British Cycling were selected for the Olympic Development Apprenticeship in October 2014 and some will be riding the event in April 2015 so you could be riding alongside future Olympic stars....

See you in April. Book on early, there are only 300 places!!

We do not offer refunds but we hope you are ok with this as all funds go the club and everyone involved is a volunteer, giving their time as cyclists, for cyclists.

Darren, Mick, Kelly, Craig and the RVC volunteers look forward to meeting you.
