The 100 km route offers a challenging ride through the heart of the East Midlands, winding its way through the quiet country lanes located throughout the National Forest. The route begins and ends by passing through the Charnwood Forest, which is an area of ancient woodland located just outside Loughborough famed for a number of country parks including Bradgate Park and Beacon Hill.
Riders will first pass through this area as they head on the first outward leg through picturesque villages and country lanes around Bosworth Battlefield and Thornton Reservoir. This leg of the route is rolling with a number of gradual climbs to warm the legs up before heading back towards Loughborough and the Charnwood Forest where the elevation begins to ramp up.
Anyone who thought the Midlands lacked any tough hills will want to think again!
A photographer will be on route to capture you at the start / finish line and also out on the route. There will be two feed stations which will be packed full of drinks and snacks. Our feed stations stock a variety of drinks and sweet and savoury snacks.
