3 NEW Routes to Choose From

Route 1:  Belles of Belvoir 30miles (1,300ft)

Starting in the lovely Vale of Belvoir,  join us on our friendly 30 miler, on quiet country lanes through  pretty villages. The route is undulating and heads out further west than previous years, into the Nottinghamshire Wolds. There’s  a NEW village hall stop in Wymeswold just over half way, where you can refuel with eye-watering homemade cakes and savoury options.   You will have a couple of leg-twinging pulls at 7 miles and at 25 miles and you will finish on a lovely downhill back to event HQ, where you will be given a well deserved hero’s welcome. 

 

 


Route 2: Belles of Belvoir 50miles (2,400ft)

This ride also heads out west from Hose along quiet country lanes. Your first little challenge is the hill in Kinoulton and you will cycle through the ‘W’ villages of Widermerpool, Wysall and Wymeswold, where you can refuel at mile 15 in the village hall.   Over the next 24 miles you’ll dip and climb about 1,000ft, passing through the charming villages of Seagrave, Thrussington and Hoby before a steep descent into your second village hall stop with a different, but equally delicious selection of sweet and savoury foods.  The final leg of the ride is an undulating 15 miles back to tea and medals.

 

 


Route 3: Belles of Belvoir 75miles (3,500ft)

You ladies are in for a real treat – a challenging, but a stunning ride with new climbs, gorgeous villages and refreshments at two village halls to titillate your taste buds.   You will head out earliest and cover about 25 miles and 1,000ft before your first stop in Wymeswold. From there you will head up and out of the village and head further south. Over the next 24 miles you’ll dip and climb about 1,000ft, passing through the charming villages of Seagrave, Thrussington and Hoby before a steep descent into your second village hall stop with a different, but equally delicious selection of sweet and savoury foods. The final leg of your ride is the most challenging, with a further 1,500ft of climbing over 26 miles, finishing with a lovely long descent down Harby hill.

 

Hose village hall

Hose village hall is our event HQ and we are really pleased to be back in the refurbished hall, after 18 months of work following fire damage.  

There is ample free car parking. Please do follow the signs as we separate cars arriving and departing (past the Hose Tennis and Bowls clubs) from cyclists, who use the main entrance infront of the hall.
