Sunday 20nd September 2020.
ONLINE entries will be open when we know it is safe to hold this event.
As with all our events, the focus is on great rides, scrumptious cakes (for riders only please!) and an all round good day out. Check out our ‘2 wheels and a piece of cake’ reviews on our Facebook page.
Note…just in case you were wondering, these are quite different routes from our ‘Belles of Belvoir’ event held in June.
Blast 40 miles (approx. 1,800 ft climbing)
If you are not familiar with cycling in the Vale of Belvoir, and surrounding villages, then you are in for a treat. The country lanes are quiet and the villages and scenery are pretty and varied. This route will provide the challenge of a few of the local hills and will take you on some of the less well travelled roads in the Vale. Riders can enjoy the chance to refuel and recharge at our ‘Piece of Cake’ feed station about half way.
Blast 60 miles (approx. 3,200ft climbing)
There are 2 well spaced out quality village hall feed stations enroute – riders only please.
Blast 100 miles (approx. 5,000ft climbing)
This challenging 100 mile route takes you through the tranquil Vale of Belvoir and then out east of the A1 and south as far as Clipsham, through pretty villages on quiet roads. The route is certainly lumpy and whether this is your first century or you are a regular 100 miler, this ride is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.
2 well stocked village hall feed stations (mile 31 and 80) are provided for riders which will keep you refuelled and smiling.
* Well researched and sign-posted routes.
* Our well-stocked ‘Piece of Cake’ feed-stations (for riders only please!) offering scrummy homemade cakes, other refreshments and drinks.
* A goody bag and optional massage.
* Finishers medal for the first 300 to register
* Mechanical and medical support.
The event venue is at the Hose village Hall, which nestles at the bottom of the ridge in the Vale of Belvoir between Nottingham, Grantham and Melton Mowbray.
The venue is on the edge of a small village which is served by quiet country lanes. There is plenty of space for free parking on the field and toilet facilities are available. Toilets will be available at all ‘Piece of Cake’ feed stations along the routes.
