The HOY 100 Returns in 2017 with a New Summer Date

by Holly Blades

The annual HOY 100 sportive will return to Arley Hall in Cheshire on Sunday 2nd July offering cyclists a chance to join Sir Chris Hoy on a choice of 100km or 100 mile courses. 

With Sir Chris Hoy being based in Cheshire the two courses have been designed with his input to take in some of his favourite cycling roads. They offer a real mixture of terrain from the flat country lanes on the Cheshire Plains to some challenging climbs on the edge of the Peak District.

Mark Gregory, Evans Cycles Event Manager said "The move to Cheshire last year proved to be a great success, not only are we on Sir Chris Hoy's local roads but the varied riding terrain in the area has allowed us to make the event accessible to a wide range of cycling abilities." 

''After the fantastic feedback we had from cyclists last year, I'm really pleased that the HOY 100 is returning to Cheshire again on 2nd July. Once again I look forward to riding with and talking to as many cyclists as possible at the 2017 HOY 100.''  Sir Chris Hoy. 

Starting from the grounds of the Arley Hall Estate the 100km route winds its way through country lanes staying mainly on the Cheshire Plains passing both Dunham Massey Deer Park and Tatton Park along the way before returning back to the finish.

For riders looking for a tougher challenge the 100 mile route is not only longer but heads for some more challenging terrain on the edge of the Peak District. There's a chance to test your legs as we climb up through Macclesfield Forest before starting to head back past Alderley Edge and then a relatively fast and flat run in across the Cheshire Plains to the finish.

As well as the rides there will be the latest range of HOY Bikes on show and free British Cycling Go Ride coaching sessions back at the finish for younger rides. The adult entry price is £35 with free child entry also available. The entry fee and includes your choice of fully waymarked routes, electronic chip timing, well stocked feed stations, finisher's medal and post ride food. Evans Cycles will also donate £5 from every entry to The Scottish Association for Mental Health charity for which Sir Chris Hoy is an ambassador. 

Places for the event are limited and early entry is encouraged to avoid disappointment, for more information and to book your place:
