Following the success of the inaugural Rise Above Sportive in 2015, we are excited to be able to announce the date for the 2016 edition. We received some fantastic feedback on last year’s event with many Rider’s saying it was the sportive highlight of the year.

Great is good but perfect is better and we, like Mark himself, always strive for perfection and so for 2016 we will be presenting you with an even better Rise Above.

Do you want a challenge? Do you want to be part of Mark Cavendish’s official Sportive? The chance to ride with the winner of 26 Tour de France stages, then look no further and be part of the most prestigious Sportive in the North*. This bucket list ride across Cheshire, Chester and North Wales will see scenic forestry roads, linked with breath-taking views and iconic Welsh landscapes, full of challenging climbs and inspiring countryside as well as riding on closed roads in Chester.

Start: Chester City Centre
Finish: Chester City Centre
Promo Village: Chester City Centre

All three Rise Above routes have been tweaked slightly from the 2015 event but they will again spread across Cheshire and North Wales. Rise Above will capture beautiful scenery and the famous Horseshoe Pass in Denbighshire, north-east Wales. The road reaches a maximum height of 417 metres (1,368ft) and offers one of the many challenges on the routes.

Once again we will be incorporating a Timed Climb sponsored by our Timing Partner DMR. Further information will be provided in due course.

Take a look at the profiles and choose one of the three routes designed by Mark.
