UCI Road World Championship Sportive

Beat the ballot! Get a guaranteed sportive place with Leeds Cares!

The UCI 2019 Road World Championships Official Sportive rolls into Harrogate on 22nd September 2019 and Leeds Cares are delighted to offer a limited number of guaranteed places for the event. The Championships have not been held in the UK for over thirty years so it really is a once in a lifetime event! 

So, if you love cycling this is your chance to ride parts of the official course on race day, while raising money for our charity. Signing up through Leeds Cares is currently the only way to get access to the coveted long route which has already sold out through the main ballot.

Simply pay a £50 deposit now and pledge to raise an additional £395 (£445 total)  and you will be part of the action. You’ll also receive an exclusive limited edition Leeds Cares branded Santini cycling jersey to wear on the day.

There are three distances to choose from – so the event will offer a challenge to cyclists of all abilities.

Short (72km)

Medium (98km)

Long (150km)

You can see the routes in detail here. Leeds Cares is currently the only way to get a long route place in the official sportive.


100% of the money you raise (including the deposit) will enable us to drive exceptional health and wellbeing across Leeds, Yorkshire and beyond.
