The 24m route is a great loop around Belvoir Castle, taking in quiet country lanes and pretty villages. The route is undulating with nearly 1200ft (355m) of climbing overall. We get the biggest climb over with towards the start of the ride.
The 50m route is more challenging and offers 2,300ft (700m) of climbing, up the ridge 3 times to get your heart pumping.
For those of you looking for an extra challenge try our 70 mile route, with 3290 feet of climbing. Two well spaced and well stocked feed stations will keep you refuelled. We welcome juniors aged 8-17 on our 24 and 50 mile rides. Please email to secure a place and bring £20 cash on the day.
