Penlee Sportive 2023

Penlee Sportive is a charity cycle event in aid of the RNLI along the coast of West Cornwall.

The Penlee Mayday Sportive is a challenging ride to raise money for the RNLI. There are 3 routes to choose from:

  • The Lifeboat Route is from Penlee to St Ives, then to Sennen Cove (including the hill) and Lands End before returning via Mousehole and Penlee, around 75km and taking in the classic coastal hills of Penwith.
  • The Mayday route is shorter, from Penlee to St Just and Lands End then back via Lamorna and Mousehole, and comes in at 41.5km. This is a great option for the more casual rider. 
  • Family Ride We’ll also have a family friendly short route from Penlee Point old lifeboat station and back, around 4.2km. You can stop and visit the old station. Most of this route is on the coast path/cycle way or pavement.
