Belvoir Blast

Sunday 18th September 2022.

Online entries are OPEN

 

Belvoir BlastOpen to all, this sportive is for the lads as well as the lasses. There is a choice of 3 circular road routes (40,  60, and 100 miles), supported by 1/2 well equipped and catered village hall cake stations!

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.

 


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  in Skillington about half way.

Please note 2022 route may be subject to tweaks. We will publish the Final ’22 route closer to the event.

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 30 and 80) are provided for riders which will keep you refuelled and smiling.

Please note Blast 100 will rely on GPS files and will NOT be signposted.  Some of the route overlaps, but will you need a method of loading the route to a GPS device.
