The Sportive  - Saturday 17th May

There are four route options, 34,49,77 and 89 miles between Thoresby and the picturesque town of Southwell to cater for all abilities and experience. All of the routes and their profiles can be found at the ITP Events website.  As usual the sportive is fully supported, with food (on route and post-event), mechanical support, broom wagon and electronic timing. All you need to think about is turning the pedals.

The Racing

There is a full weekend’s programme of racing, with the highlight being the Elite Women’s CiCLE Classic, part of the National Road Race Series.  This is the women’s version of the International CiCLE Classic that takes place in Rutland in April, and riders and spectators can expect the sort of off road sections and tough terrain that the CiCLE events are renowned for.

Also featuring on the estate roads on both days are the following

 4th category road races

3rd and 4th category road races

Youth racing (U16)

 

Plus, there is a distinctly unconventional element to the weekend, as it also features

Unicycle & British Open Penny farthing Championships

Paper boy racing

Check out the penny farthing racing from 2013 here 

On the Saturday evening there is the ever- popular Barn Dance in the Riding Hall
