Organised by Yorkshire Water in partnership with WaterAid, the Kelda Sportive returned for its third year

On 14 May 2016 over 80 riders took to the challenge of riding either 50 or 80 miles for WaterAid. 2016 saw the start of the ride move to Grimwith Reservoir high in the Yorkshire Dales using the unique and very special clubhouse of the Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club as the event base.

This year, thanks to our sponsors and amazing riders, we raised over £3000 for WaterAid's work in Ethiopia. All timings and photos from the day can be found following the links below, have a peak at our sponsors too, they really are lovely

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the riders who took part this year and made the event possible, we hope to see you all again in 2017! If you have any feedback or questions in the mean time please get in touch at
