The Sportive

22 September 2019

The Rossendale Sportive


Come and join us on 22 September 2019 for Rossendale Triathlon Clubs inaugural Rossendale Sportive in aid of motor neurone disease.  


The sportive starts at 08:30 from our very own base at Marl pits and then takes you through the heart of the Lancashire Pennines, cycling through some picturesque countryside on undulating roads including the beautiful forest of Bowland. 


You can choose either a 40-mile or 60-mile route. Both routes offer rolling hills, a few nice long climbs with some steep descents - what goes up, must come down! 


All you have to decide is are you going full-gas, or is it a lazy Sunday afternoon with a few bumps in the road.
