There is something for riders of all levels of fitness and experience starting from Giant Store Rutland. The 57 mile route is ideal for those new to cycling and cyclo-sportives, but still hard enough to provide a personal challenge. The toughest challenges come from the 104 and 78 mile options, which features the most picturesque lanes and villages the area has to offer. Taking in not only Rutland but neighbouring Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, the long route has almost 5000 feet of climbing and includes views of Rutland Water, the Vale of Belvoir, Belvoir Castle, Eyebrook Reservoir and the impressive Harringworth Viaduct.
THREE distances to choose from - see grey buttons on the left hand side of this page for routes and elevations etc.
ALL ROUTES ARE ON ROAD, NO OFF-ROAD SECTIONS. ALL SUITABLE FOR A ROAD BIKE
Feedstations at village halls on route. No pop-up feeds at the roadside.
Post-event food included in the entry fee
Mechanical Support and support vehicles
ALL ROUTES £30
