Event: 18 May 2014
Location: Holdenby House, Northamptonshire
Starting from the majestic and historic Holdenby House in the heart of Northamptonshire, the 3 Counties 100 rides the beautiful Welland Valley and the picturesque cycle roads of Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.
The 100km and 100 mile routes of this sportive cover the same course, with the 100 mile route veering away at the half way point to cover Rutland Water.
