This year is the 100th birthday of Hull Thursday Road Club, and to celebrate the club has organised two 'Big G' cyclo-sportives on Saturday August 2, 2008.

Based around the medieval market town of Beverley, competitors have a choice of either 100 kilometre (62 miles) or 100 mile (161 kilometres) routes around the rolling Yorkshire countryside. The hundred mile route includes many of the classic climbs which feature in the East Yorkshire Classic Premier Calendar event and in the 2006 National Road Race Championships.
