Sportive Lakes launched in 2014 with the first editions of Ladies of the Lake and Velo Retro. Based in Ulverston on the southern edge of the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage we provide events which are all about fun friendship and fabulous, memorable experiences.
Sportive Lakes was created by husband and wife team Ali and Alan Brenton. We’d ridden lots of events but were really blown away by the friendly, supportive atmosphere when we rode our first retro event. We decided to apply this same approach to a range of rides and festivals based around our home town, gradually trimming these down to our two favourites, Velo Retro and Ladies of the Lake.
We’re really committed to making your visit here something special, something you’ll return to with friends, year after year!
Ulverston, is a special rarity, a Cumbrian market town which has kept much of its traditional charm and character. With delightful cobbled streets, independent shops, pubs and restaurants, it’s a lovely place for riders and friends to spend a weekend. Find out more about the town and accommodation here.
