Tour de Manc with Sportive Breaks
Sportive Breaks are proud to be partners of the Tour de Manc. While we usually travel overseas for our sportives, this one is a bit closer to home, riding some of our local roads.
The Tour de Manc is 100% not for profit, and welcomes a mix of participants, from first time sportive riders looking to raise money for their chosen cause, to seasoned riders looking to challenge themselves on the Mad Manc.
There are 4 distances to suit every level of rider – the 50km Quarter Manc, the 100km Half Manc, the 100 mile Classic Manc or the 200km Mad Manc

Tour de Manc
Sportive Breaks are proud to be partnering with our local sportive, the Tour de Manc. This is a rite of passage for any Mancunian cyclist, whether you’re just getting into the sport and want to challenge yourself over 50km, or if you’re an experienced sportive rider who fancies a 200km ride.
Since its first edition in 2017 the event has gone from strength to strength, and the 2023 edition promises to be even bigger and better!
All 4 distances start & finish at Bowlee Community Park in Middleton, Greater Manchester.
The Classics Manc is the original 100 mile route, through 9 boroughs of Greater Manchester, with 7,000ft of climbing.
If you fancy going all out on the Mad Manc, it’s a 200km ride with 10,000ft of climbing, including an extra loop just to make sure you experience the Ramsbottom Rake!
The 100km Half Manc misses some of the Southern parts of the region, but still has some tough climbs including Owd Betts.
The Quarter Manc route is designed to be achievable for most riders, but still has a couple of hills to test your legs.
Very challenging: multiple tough sectors and a full day epic ride.
|Medium Route||100 miles||2,450m||
Plenty of tough sectors but suitable for most regular riders.
Rolling terrain with the occasional tougher section.
A flat or short easy sportive.
