Also on the day – Children’s skills workshop

Our local club WVCC Whizz kids will be delivering Go-Ride coaching activities which have been designed to introduce young people to a range of cycling disciplines. So if you are aged between 4yrs and 12yrs book yourself a place! Bike and helmet required! For more info on what the club offer here.

Routes

Please see the maps below to learn more about the routes. The first 25km is both distances combined and then where signposted the route will split. There are multiple water and feed stations on offer this year;

  • The first at the very funky Cafe Ventoux with a chance to enter into an awesome prize draw to win an ASSOS jersey.
  • The next feed station will be located in Lubenham for both rides with hot refreshments, food and of course a loo stop!
  • The final water station (for 100K riders only) will be hosted by our friends at the Kelmarsh Buddhist Centre.

Whilst we will try our best we cannot guarantee the routes will be exact on the day.
