Dare 2bRutland CiCLE Tour

Posted 04/12/2013 - Ian Penrose

Join over 1000 riders on Saturday 26th April 2014 at the Dare 2b Rutland CiCLE Tour. Choose from four routes on Rutland’s original and best sportive, all starting at Giant Store Rutland on the picturesque south shore of Rutland Water.    

There is something for riders of all levels of fitness and experience. The 59 mile route is ideal for those new to cycling and cyclo-sportives, but still hard enough to provide a personal challenge. For completely new riders there is now a 21 mile option which is less hilly than the other routes. The toughest challenges come from the  100 and 75 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.   

All routes except the shortest have a feedstation, with two on the 100 mile route. The event is affiliated to Hope Against Cancer.  Contact them to raise money for cancer research and join their ever growing group of fundraising riders.

On the Sunday Giant Store Rutland will also be offering led rides from their store to watch key points of the International CiCLE Classic. Watch some of the top professional riders tackle some of the toughest roads in the area.  Sportive entrants can enter our competition to win two places in one of the support vehicles for this race.  Like our Facebook page to make sure you don’t miss the offers and competitions between now and the event.

Entrants will be able to take advantage of several offers from our sponsors and supporters, Dare 2b and Giant Store Rutland. Dare 2b will be offering a high quality event jersey at a large discount.

Giant Store Rutland will be running special offer and led rides leading up to the event.  This will include a free bike safety check, led familiarization ride, roadside repair sessions, nutrition talks and plans. There will also be good old-fashion discounts on many regularly used products, including on a Giant Starter Pack for new riders.
