Excellent value for money
I’m relatively new to riding at the ripe age of 50plus. Ribble we’re recommended to me.
I researched what I thought was right, the team at Ribble provided sound advice and helped me with my final choice.
I’m absolutely thrilled with the bike and what I paid for it.
I too will recommend the Ribble racing sportive bike

FANTASTIC so far....
Early days (3 rides so far) but 27 PR’s on Strava over the 3 rides says it all really.
Upgraded from an aluminium bike and can feel the difference immediately.
The response to an increase in power is so much more in comparison.
Service and communication from Ribble was excellent.
Slight cliche but it’s a bike that I just want to get out and ride!

From the minute I walked into the Ribble shop in the Mailbox, I received excellent customer service. The initial consultant was informative and narrowed my bike choice to the Sportive racing. Then I was taken through all options and deals (even getting a £50 discount through an online code). Once payment was authorised, my new bike was built, delivered and collected within one week.
Brilliant bike and excellent service. Thank you Ribble

On my first ride I improved my average speed by 1.5mph; that's pretty impressive:)
Is it possible to get this edition with a different wheelset - one that matches (or at least, don't clash with) the frame? There are two wheelset options on the website and neither make a visually appealing bike. I'd order one today at this price but the red trim on the wheels is an eyesore with a black/hi viz frame.
Thanks for getting in touch
