Geldards has re-pledged its support for Derby’s two major cycling sportive events this year.

Geldards will work with organisers Cycle Derby and HUUB Events to stage the Team Challenge events - a popular element of the Spring Classic Sportive in April and the North Derbyshire Challenge in September.

The Spring Classic on Sunday April 23 will start and finish at Markeaton Park where riders will take on one of three routes – 40km, 80km or 160km around Derbyshire and East Staffordshire. In addition, a King/Queen of the Mountain challenge for those participating in the longer distances.

The Team Challenge is an opportunity for groups of up to ten cyclists to work together in a bid to travel the greatest distance. The team with the greatest total distance will take home the coveted Geldards’ Team Challenge title.

Geldards will also host a hospitality area at Markeaton Park with exclusive access for Team Challenge riders throughout the day.

"I hope that teams of friends and colleagues will take up the challenge to get on their bikes and crank up some miles."

David Williams, Chairman at Geldards, said: “Cycling is one of the fastest growing sports in the country and Geldards is proud to be supporting an event that will build upon Derby’s ambition to become a cycling city.

“As a proactive member of the Derby business community and a keen cyclist myself, I hope that teams of friends and colleagues will take up the challenge to get on their bikes and crank up some miles.”

Mark Smith from Cycle Derby said: “The Spring Classic Sportive is set to be the biggest ever cycling event in Derby and we are delighted that Geldards have once again come on board to help us stage the events this year.

“The Spring Classic Sportive has something for everyone with three different distance routes.

“As well as seasoned cyclists, we are attracting a lot of people and young families who are new to the sport which meets our objective of getting more people active”.

Claire Duffin is Race Director for HUUB Events. She continued: “The response in the past couple of months since we opened entries for the Sportive shows that Derby is well and truly a cycling city.

“Entries are also coming in from cyclists from further afield which is great news for the city as they come here with their family and friends for an enjoyable day out.”

The sporting event will raise money for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre and Ashgate Hospice Care.
