Cyclists at the Eden Classic

Eden Classic sportive cycling event

The Eden Project is cancelling the planned Eden Classic sportive cycle ride that was due to take place on Sunday September 11, 2022. We have taken this decision due to low numbers of entrants and apologise for any inconvenience caused to riders who have signed up.

Entrants will be receiving an automatic refund in the next ten days.

The Eden Classic team are going to revitalise the event, devise new routes and bring it back on Sunday May 19, 2024.  We really hope you can join us then. Please look out for more details in the coming months.

The annual Eden Classic

The Eden Classic sportive is a non-competitive mass participation cycle ride offering three spectacular rides that take in the most scenic parts of the south coast in Cornwall.

Riders have a choice of three route options, ranging from a short yet challenging ride of 36 miles to a middle distance of 60 miles, and a long ride for the experienced sportive rider of 100 miles

All routes take in dramatic coastal and country scenery and include the Lost Gardens of Heligan. At the end the riders can enjoy the sight of the world-famous Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes in as they descend into the Eden Arena.
