Explain cycling races/disciplines
Pretty new to the road cycling scene. I am doing it for fitness a training for another sport but it would be nice to do a few races for some thing to aim for. Now I have seem a lot of 'sportive' events but people say these are not actually races. I am usually run, so compete in 10ks, and I basically want something similar, actaully a competition . What would be best to find such races, as all the events I have seen on British cycling are sportives. Could someone explain please? And would I need a to join a local club?
