Selby Three Swans Sportive

06 September 2020






In 2019, more than 1,100 riders took to the roads of Yorkshire to complete this scenic sportive and in 2020 we’re hoping for even more. With a choice of 30, 60 and 100 miles there’s something for everyone who likes a good bike ride, whether you are just getting into cycling, looking for a family challenge or ready to ride a century.

Your entry fee includes a finisher’s memento, chip timing with immediate results and on route feed stations. You’ll also be able to enjoy food, refreshments and a post cycle massage at our event village on the Selby Abbey pavement.

Fundraising for Yorkshire Cancer Research

When you enter the Selby Three Swans Sportive, part of your registration fee will go to the charity to be invested in vital cancer research and community health projects. You can also make an additional donation at the point of registration. For more information on how your money helps, go to the How We Help page. 

Alternatively, you can choose to join our fundraising team and collect sponsorship for your challenge. We provide first-rate support, including some great ideas to get you started and without the pressure of raising minimum sponsorship amounts. 
If every person taking part in the Selby Three Swans Sportive raised an additional £50, £50,000 could be invested in lifesaving projects right here in Yorkshire

You can also purchase a Yorkshire Cancer Research cycling jersey in advance by emailing They will also be available on the day of the event.

Whilst there is no minimum age to participate, all participants under the age of 18 will need to have completed a Parental Consent Form to take part, and all participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the ride.
