England's smallest county is playing host to a big weekend of road cycling
during April.
Some of the country's top professional and amateur riders are expected to
converge on Rutland for two days of gruelling non-stop action and tough
Starting proceedings on Saturday 16th April 2011 is the third edition of the
'Discover Rutland CiCLE Tour' cyclo-sportive.
Choose from two routes - 100 or 50 miles - both of which are set to challenge
even the toughest competitors. There are short steep climbs and hard riding
throughout although both routes have some easier sections which allow riders the
satisfaction of a good average speed. The 50 mile route is challenging but
achievable for those just setting out in the world of cyclo-sportives.
The 100 mile route, with nearly 5000ft of climbing, starts and finishes in
Rutland's picturesque market town of Oakham, and also takes riders into
neighbouring Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
Those choosing the 50 mile ride face a shorter but equally tough challenge
through picture postcard villages and rolling countryside.
Views on both routes are equally stunning with views of Rutland Water, Belvoir
Castle, the Vale of Belvoir, Eyebrook Reservoir and the impressive Harringworth
