Belles of Belvoir

Sunday 9th June 2019 

Online entry is now open. We are looking forward to our 5th Ladies only        ‘Belles of Belvoir’ and another day full of sunshine and smiles. We do have a limit on the number of riders and we expect to sell out this year, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We have 3 undulating routes to choose from:  24, 50 and 70 miles. 


Belles 24 (approx. 1160ft/ 350m of climbing)

Perhaps this is your first sportive/organised ride and you are looking for something to aim for?  Our Belles of Belvoir 24 mile route could be the perfect fun challenge to set yourself this year.  Alternatively you might be an experienced rider and fancy coming along for a social ride with friends. On this circular route on quiet country lanes, you will pass through pretty villages in the Vale, catching glimpses of Belvoir Castle at various points along the way.

With a ‘Piece of Cake’ station en-route,  you can enjoy a cup of tea and some homemade refreshments (riders only please!) and make the most of your Sunday morning. Convince a friend to sign up with you or come along and meet new friends.

Belles – 50 miles (approx. 2300ft/ 700m of climbing)

If you want more of a challenge, this ride is the one for you.  A fantastic loop around the Vale of Belvoir, with at least a couple of trips up and down the central ridge, this will suit the more seasoned sportive rider, or those of you who want more of a challenge.  Our 50 mile route takes in approx. 700m of climbing which includes Terrace Hill, the one local ascent mentioned fondly by Simon Warren in his book,100 Greatest Cycling Climbs‘.  The climb is short and sweet, but it will certainly get your heart pumping and legs spinning.  You will pass two ‘Piece of Cake’ feed stations on this route. (Refreshments for riders only please!)

Early bird £33 (until 28th Feb.)

Belles – 70 miles (approx. 3300ft/1005m of climbing)

This proved popular again this year, so back by popular demand, is our 70 mile ride.  The route takes in a gorgeous and challenging circuit of the Vale of Belvoir, and beyond.   You will enjoy stunning scenery and the best of the climbs that the area has to offer.  We’ll keep you refreshed at our two feed stations evenly spaced ( refreshments for riders only please! It’s no walk in the park, but we think you’ll love it!
