The final instalment of the Roux Bikes 100 Series, the fantastic series with incredible reviews brought to you by Sportive HQ.

Where else can you find a chip timed sportive with mechanics at every turn, paramedics on fully kitted motorbikes (Medi-Bikes) and feed stations to rival your average Velo Cafe, all for just £22.50 or £60 for the full series of three sportives. Last year we were only 40 places short of selling out so on't hang about in getting your place booked, we are sure to be busy this year.

The Trent Valley 100 offers two fantastic routes to end the season. The 100 miler circumnavigates Lincoln and takes riders into the Lincolnshire Wolds for some hill climbs before returning to HQ. The 100km route shares the first 35 miles as the 100 mile route and then takes in the sites of Lincoln itself bringing riders through to the finish back at Gainsborough. The other thing we like to do is feed you well. At registration we give you a large flapjack from 'Dorset Flapjacks' (480 cal approx!) and a pack of haribo. Once you get to the first feed station, there's a packed lunch, a selection of teas or coffee and plenty of SIS electrolyte. If you're on the 100 mile route the second feed station has teas and coffee, cake, fruit more haribo and SIS, so you should be able to stay the distance! The start HQ has plenty of space, changing and shower facilities and will feature some good local cyclings stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments by the Coffee Stop. Whichever route you choose, the choice doesn't need to be made until the split point of the ride. We use a timing system with checkpoints so that if you started with intention of doing the 100km and you're feeling strong, you can still decide to do the 100 miler if you wish and vice versa, we like a relaxed atmosphere for this. A great last get together of the season with this the toughest of the 100 Series and just prove to yourself how you have improved over the season!

The Trent Valley 100 is produced by Sportive HQ in partnership with the Trent Valley Road Club.
