Cycle Mickleover, a well-established cycling club based in the city with over 235 members, took part in the Spring Classic Sportive in April, with the ten fastest members lifting the Team Challenge trophy, sponsored by Geldards.

Team leader Dan Donovan said: “We were delighted to clinch the Geldards Team Challenge trophy at the Derby Spring Classic Sportive and were very happy with all of our riders’ performances.

Next up is the North Derbyshire Challenge cycle sportive on Sunday September 17 organised by Cycle Derby and HUUB Events which starts and finishes at Markeaton Park.

As well as individuals riding in the event, the Geldards Team Challenge is an opportunity for up to ten cyclists to work together in an attempt to travel the greater distance.

Due to holiday and other sporting commitments, only a few members of Cycle Mickleover are entering the North Derbyshire Challenge. The club are therefore challenging other teams to gear up for the event – although they warn that they will be back in force to regain their title in spring 2018.

“It’s a shame that we will not be defending our title at the North Derbyshire Challenge but the field will be wide open for a new champion. Whoever wins should not get too comfortable though as – we’ll be back!” said Dan Donovan.

As well as individuals riding in the event, the Geldards Team Challenge is an opportunity for up to ten cyclists to work together in an attempt to travel the greater distance.
