As well as our regular club runs we also take part in UK and European sportives throughout the year. This page is where you can see which events Sky Velo members will be entering in the coming months. The dates for our upcoming socials and our committee meetings will also be posted here if you want to come along and have your say in how the club should be run.

WHERE - Birmingham, Warwickshire
COST - £85
DISTANCE - 161km
ENTRIES OPEN - SOLD OUT!
DETAILS - Starting in the heart of Birmingham, 15,000 cyclists will line up to start the first ever Velo Birmingham. It's a 100 mile route on completely closed roads through the picturesque Worcestershire and Herefordshire countryside before returning to Birmingham. Tens of thousands of people have already pre-registered, and with just 15,000 entries up for grabs, demand is going to be huge. Entries will open at 8am on Thursday September 29 2016 exclusively to those who have pre-registered.
Etape London - Sunday 24 September, 2017
WHERE - Stratford, London
COST - £41-£49
DISTANCE - 79/147/186km
ENTRIES OPEN - TBC
DETAILS - L’Etape London by Le Tour de France, organised by Human Race and in support of Access Sport brings the glamour of the Tour de France to the capital, following sister event the Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride. The open roads route for the event takes in much of Stage Three of the 2014 Tour de France route and culminates spectacularly with a lap of honour around the Lee Valley VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home of the London 2012 Games. It sold out in 2015, making it a must-ride event for those lucky enough to get a place.
