Southampton Sporterium

My Journey is excited to sponsor the Southampton Sporterium for another year.

The hugely anticipated event for cyclists returns to Southampton on 1st April 2023, with My Journey sponsoring the event again this year. The Southampton Sporterium offers riders two Sportives plus a free family ride area as part of 'Spin City'.  

It is set to be a fun filled day event in the city, thanks to the event organisers ReesLeisure, who also run the popular ABP Southampton Marathon, Winchester Half Marathon, Southampton Sailing Week, TryTri Events and Wessex Swim School. 


The Sporterium offers two Sportives on the day with distances of 60km and 100km. Those routes allow riders to cycle around Hampshire, taking in the countryside as they complete their chosen route at their own pace.

Register for either the 60KM or 100KM Sportive here

60KM Sportive 100KM Sportive
The shorter of the two Sportive routes, designed for those who would like a shorter ride or who may be taking part in their first sportive event. Starting at Southampton City Centre, which then rides through the beautiful scenery of Fair Oak, Shawford, Braishfield and Romsey before finishing back in Southampton.  The longer distance for the Sportive events on offer. The 100km offers the most scenic route which starts at Southampton City Centre, where riders will then travel through the countryside and head towards the North of Winchester, through New Alresford and then across to Stockbridge. Riders then head back to Southampton City Centre, by travelling through Romsey.
