Road Ride (65km/42 miles/640m climbing) Start time: from 9am to 10am
The shorter route follows many of the same country roads as the 100km route and includes many of the challenging climbs that characterise that ride. The route follows the start of the longer ride before branching off before the 25km mark to miss out some off the north Leicester villages and head to the feed station at Braunston. For those hoping for an easier time beware! As this route re-joins the longer route it tackles the stiff climb out of Lyddington and, after skirting Eyebrook reservoir, you turn right and head up your last big challenge, the Devil’s Staircase. As you crest Belcher’s Hill your effort is rewarded with stunning views over the Welland Valley and you gradually drop down towards the finish 10km away.
At the end of the ride all entrants will be able to celebrate their achievement at the Brewery.
