Rating: 98.9% based on 4 reviews - Rate this Event Now

The Hope Against Cancer Leicestershire SuperTour is a new charity sportive which takes advantage of the varied nature of Leicestershire terrain, combining the tough hills of the Charnwood forest with rolling and flat sections where riders can move at a good speed and nudge up the average. THERE IS A 5KM RUN OPTION FOR TRIATHLETES AT THE END OF THE 112 MILE RIDE. The run route is through the University campus and an almost traffic free lane. A map can be found on the route link below.

There are three options, a 112 mile cycle ride, a 64 mile cycle ride, plus a 112 mile ride plus 5km run.

- 112 mile cycle route

- 64 mile cycle route

- 5k Run route

There will be feedstations at the 25, 61 and 88 mile points. The 25 mile feedstation serves the 64 and 112 mile routes.

The SuperTour routes are designed to appeal to both the serious and experienced cyclo-sportive rider as well as riders who are perhaps setting out in cycling. There are enough tough climbs in the Charwood forest to challenge the most experienced of riders, but will still be achievable for those new to cycling.

Donations will go to the charity Hope Against Cancer

It is not compulsory to raise sponsorship, but in order to encourage riders to raise money themselves there is no target amount for sponsorship, just do what you can. The charity will be grateful to receive whatever you can raise.

The Hope Foundation will be providing volunteers for the one of the feedstations and for the administration at the start and finish and there will be an opportunity to donate at the finish.

We hope to make this an annual event which will grow year on year and become a well-known event in the sportive and charity calendar.

The event will benefit from Chip Timing provided by SPORTident.

Mechanical support is provided by Neil Exton of All-Geared-Up.
