The Leicestershire SuperTour

Cycle Sportive , Nottinghamshire – Sunday, 09 Jun 2013

Registered Sportive

Event Summary

Event Overview

Take part in sportive which covers almost a complete circuit of Leicestershire. I have designed the routes for this event to serve the purposes of all types of rider from a variety of backgrounds.

The routes are hilly in places but rolling others, so you will get the chance to ride at a good average speed in a group, giving you the chance to ride for the day with friends and make new aquaintances on the road. For any triathletes in training for an Ironman, the long route is 112 miles, with the option of a 5km run for those who want it. There is also a 64 mile option, which is hillier overall than the long route. The long route can be divided into quarters in terms of difficulty, with the the first and third quarters providing the sterner test.

About the Event

Info for Riders

The Hope Against Cancer Leicestershire SuperTour is a charity sportive which takes advantage of the varied terrain Leicestershire has to offer. Combining the tough hills of the Charnwood Forest in the west, the rugged terrain of the east and the rolling countryside and flats in between, there is something for everyone. There is the option of a 5km run at the end of the 112 mile ride for triathletes. The run route is on an almost traffic free lane.
