The next Starley Sportive is on Sunday 17th February 2019 and we are delighted to be a Coventry European City Of Sport Event. This is going to add an extra twist to our already exciting sportive. We are going to have a fusion of sport and culture. You can expect to see some fun activities going on at the event HQ as well as some fun things to get involved in yourselves.
Our aim is to recognise the contributions of Coventry based inventors John Kemp Starley and James Starley to the cycling industry. What better way to do this than getting as many people as possible out on their bikes. In addition to this the difference with the Starley Sportive is that 100% of the proceeds from the events go to charity, unlike a lot commercial sportives.
We have raised over £16,500 for local good causes so far from the events!
We would encourage you to use the Starley Sportive to raise sponsorship for any good cause or charity that is important to you.
“Many thanks for an excellent Sportive today. Very well organised and sign posted, it was interesting to come at familiar roads from a different direction. At £10 it was very good value compared to a commercial sportive !!
Thanks to all involved and to Deeley Group for a magnificent HQ.”

“This was our first Sportive, and wow, how it has sparked something in us to achieve more, challenge ourselves and join the 1000’s of other cyclists who enjoy this ‘feel good’ sport. Feeling humble.”
