The Tour of the National Forest sportive is packed with features like no other sportive out there. Loughborough is the top university for sport, for the one reason that we are the best at it. We also know how to deliver top sporting events! Our aim is not to make money like other commercial organisers but to provide you with an event which guides you around some of the most picturesque villages and country lanes in Leicestershire, and also gives you all the event features of a number of sportives all rolled into one!

Why is This Event Different?

This event is different from other sportives as the event HQ will not be held in a village hall with limited car parking and sub standard changing facilities. Instead the event headquarters will be hosted in the brand new Loughborough University stadium which has just been built and cost £4 million. To riders this means excellent car parking facilities, numerous changing rooms, all with showers and a perfect function room for a post ride meal to give you the time to reflect on a fantastic day of riding.

At signing on each rider will receive a pack, with an electronic race number, route map and lots of HighFive energy products! Three routes are available ranging from 42 Km up to 160 Km, and each route will be comprehenisvly marked, with large correx signs so there is not need to worry about getting lost!

There are numerous feed stations along each route which will be packed with HighFive drinks and energy products as well as cakes, flapjacks, wraps, biscuits and lots of other scrumptious food everyone craves whilst being out on the bike!

After the ride you will receive an instant text message informing you of your time.  You will be able to refresh in the HQ, and then relax and grab a post ride meal. Each finisher will receive a finisher's pack which includes a free t-shirt.
