Rating: Rate this Event Now

Discover parts of north Leicestershire you didn't know existed and if you've not got a bike suitable for off road riding, no problem, just take the road only signage on the route.

We've put together a 50/50 on/off road route using byways and bridleways in the Melton Mowbray area. Many of these tracks have harder, gravel type surface so it is suitable for a gravel, cyclocross or mountain bike. The 50/50 ride is designed to give roughly 50% of the ride time off road, so the mileage for the road section is higher, but you will spend abot 50% of your time on the byways and bridleways. 

This event is being run with the long term aim of financially supporting the new Leicestershire Cyclocross League

For this year only we are running a cheaper version compared to our normal sportives, so there will be manual instead of chip timing, no finishers medal and no food at the end. All routes are £20.

*    All routes fully signposted.

*    All routes timed

*    Mechanical Support

*    Broom Wagon

*    First Aid

*    Changing rooms and showers

*    Feedstations

*    GPX downloads.
