Event Overview

This will be the first sportive to incorporate the iconic Humber Bridge. There will be a dedicated pathway for cyclists on the way out, and on the return. The 2 routes of 21 and 61 miles, will take in the quiet roads of North Lincs, offering spectacular views across to Lincoln Cathedral and the Humber Estuary. The longer route will head towards the market town of Caistor, before tracking down to the river Humber, and then return to the Humber Bridge via Goxhill and Barton.

All proceeds from the ride will be given to local charities.
