Belvoir Blast

Sunday 22nd September 2019.

ONLINE entries are now live

Join us (again?) for some late summer sun.

Belvoir BlastOpen to all, this sportive is for the lads as well as the lasses. There is a choice of 3 circular road routes (28, 60, and 100 miles).

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 reviews on our Facebook page.


Blast 28 – 28 miles (approx. 1620ft climbing)

If you are not familiar with cycling in the Vale of Belvoir, then you are in for a treat. The country lanes are very quiet and the villages and scenery are pretty and varied. This route will provide the challenge of a few of the iconic 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 at 15 miles.

Note…just in case you were wondering,  this is a different route from our ‘Belles of Belvoir’ event held in June.
