Endura Trek Lionheart Is Back With A Bite For 2013

by Henry Peacock

Roaring into its third year, The Lionheart has worked hard to establish itself as one of the UK's 'must do' cyclosportives. Voted once again as one of the top sportives of 2012 by Cyclosport.org riders; they're back in the saddle on Sunday March 17th 2013, enjoying the splendour of Longleat Estate as the start and finish location of this event. Both 100 mile and 100 km routes have been altered and tweaked to perfection.

With its breathtaking rolling countryside, this is a quiet corner of South West England and both routes certainly exploit this fact. This cycling terrain certainly deserves some respect with its quota of testing climbs. Spin Events say that riders can expect full mechanical back-up, vehicular support and NEG motorcycle outriders out on course. The well stocked, village hall feed stations will come as a welcome relief, as will the free 'hotpot' back at the Event HQ on the lawns of Longleat House.

With two years of glowing reviews from riders tucked securely under its mane, The Lionheart is a perfect, early season ride, which will really stretch out those winter legs.

Spin Events have the makings of a true classic with this event - top-notch food, a great atmosphere and a stunning early season route - and their own beer. This is a great ride and comes highly recommended (rumour has it, 2013 routes will dip into the UK's Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year now that's what I call a feed station).

Entries for the 2013 Endura Trek Lionheart Cyclosportive will open on Friday 16th November and cost £36.00. 2013 'Lionhearters' can be assured of a challenging and memorable day.
