Event: 9 June 2013
Take part in a Sportive that takes in a full circuit of the rugged county of Leicestershire. The toughest climbs come early in the event in the picturesque Charnwood Forest. The long route then gives you a break in more rolling countryside until you reach tough east Leicestershire. It is a big day out, with 6227 ft of climbing over 112 miles.
There is also a 5km run option at the end of each distance for anyone training for a triathlon. The run takes place on a quiet lane and is out and back from the HQ. There is bike racking and the area is staffed to ensure security.
112 miles plus 5km run
85 miles plus 5km run
64 miles plus 5km run
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 acquaintanceson the road.
Venue: Nottingham University Sports Centre, Sutton Bonington Campus, College Road, Sutton Bonington, Notts.
