The Flat 200
It’s the one many of you have been waiting for The Flat 200, we say flat there are a couple of short sharp ‘speed bumps’ but nothing that you would call a Yorkshire Hill!
At just 3400ft over a 200 mile course this could be seen as the flattest 200 mile route around, aimed at the right time of year giving you the whole summer to train for it. You would be welcome to stay at Squires the night before but please contact them directly on the link below to book.
Setting off at 6.30am we have a steady warm up around the quiet flat roads south of York before heading over to the Trent bank, taking on some familiar roads before crossing the Trent at Keadby and heading north to take in the views of the Humber Bridge, twist back, following the foothills of the Lincolnshire Wolds (without climbing into them) before heading down to cross the Trent again and wind your way back up to Squires to achieve this big milestone.
Back at the HQ we will be waiting to present everyone who finishes with a medal to mark your achievement, a giraffe headwear to mark the occasion (everyone who enters gets one) and sit back and enjoy burger, chips and a well earned beer, all included in the entry fee.

Value for money sportive and a great day out on the bike.
At Sportive HQ, we never felt that medals and merchandise was necessary, just great quality rides at the right price but some people always said they would like a medal or something to remember the day with so we added these as options.
Our principal on this is not to charge a high price and give people free merchandise that they didn’t always want but to give you guys the choice.
So when you enter, you get to choose either the straight forward great value ride, or add a Medal, Giraffe Headwear, a tech t-shirt, a mug, a cycling jersey or the VIP Pack that includes medal, Giraffe Headwear and the Tech T-Shirt.
All of the merchandise is of the highest quality, like our rides and stuff that we ourselves use every day. The Giraffe Headwear is great in hot or cold weather, the tech t-shirts are what I use when on the turbo and the D2D Cycling Jerseys are what I ride in every day.
This choose what you want policy is what has helped up achieve our zero waste policy helping us to be an environmentally friendly company.
