CYCLO SPORTIF SERIES
About this page
The Cyclo Sportif series of events is Perth's premier and most trusted road cycling series especially designed for recreational cyclists. Each year thousands of people enjoy these fun, timed team participation events that have been developed to cater for beginner riders right through to the more serious 'road warrior'.
The 2016 series features three events held at picturesque locations in Perth metropolitan area and regional locations. Each of the courses offer their own challenges from the winding coastal roads of Yanchep to the circuit course of the Swan Valley. With a mix of fast corners, long straights and undulating terrain, there really is something for every rider.

IT"S ALL ABOUT TEAM WORK AND FUN
"Keep up the great work. Makes winter more sociable and really drives the team effort making a team stay at an acceptable pace rather than persons taking off. Really creates a team environment. Well done!"
Cyclo Sportif is all about serious fun. Come and make new friends, have fun, get fit and surprise yourself with what you can do.
It's all about working as a team. You ride in a team of four to nine riders with the aim of working together to ensure your whole team completes the course. While the series is conducted in race-like conditions it is NOT a race - there are no place-getter prizes awarded.
We welcome and support all levels of cyclists, particularly junior and novice riders and with a course length to suit your ability (usually 90km, 60km or 30km options) the Cyclo Sportif series has something for anyone looking for fun participation rides and a healthy lifestylen a safe and fun environment.
Don't have a team? Not a worry, simply enter as an individual and we'll place you in a composite team with riders of a similar ability. Before you know it, you'll all be great mates!
Your entry includes a delicious hearty and healthy meal after the ride and there are always lots of laughs shared at the post-ride lunch and some great raffle prizes and giveaways too.
THE HISTORY OF CYCLO SPORTIF CLUB
The Cyclo Sportif series was developed in 2004 when a small group of dedicated cyclists were looking for an opportunity to ride in race-like conditions without the competitive/race element of other road cycling events. They were looking for a chance to get out and ride in a safe and fun environment while building their group / team riding skills and improve their health and fitness.
Since that time, the series has become the trusted and safe option for road cyclists looking to get out on the road and cycle with their buddies, family or work colleagues.
Today, over 5,000 people register for events run by Bicycling Western Australia. We have developed a reputation for hosting and managing events that are safe, fun, trusted and reliable.
