About Us






At Hands On Events, we know that the best cyclosportives are about passionate people coming together to challenge themselves in spectacular landscapes.

12 years on from our very first event, our mission remains unchanged – to organise epic and enjoyable road cycling challenges where the rider and the route take center stage.

No gimmicks, no hyperbole. Just great events in incredible places run by passionate cyclists for like-minded endurance fiends.


We organise 4 of the toughest life-affirming road cycling challenges in the UK.

Whether you’re looking to travel through the dramatic mountain landscape on the Isle of Skye, challenge yourself riding up an Alpine style finish in the Cairngorms, or pitch your mind and body against the toughest climb in the UK – the notorious Bealach Na Ba – there’s a Hands On Event to inspire you to get you up and out of the saddle this summer.

Ride one, do a double, or if you’re looking for the ultimate challenge, then sign up for the quadruple crown and do the lot!

If you’re up for a challenge, we’ve got a challenge for you.
