Welcome to ITP Events - Cycling & Running Events Organisation
Thank you for visiting ITP Events, the home of some of the best cycling events and charity cycling challenges in the UK.
We offer some of the best cyclo-sportives in the UK, headed in May by the the Lincoln Grand Grix Sportive. This is the partner event of the University of Lincoln Grand Prix, the best loved and most historic cycle race in the UK. Take in the unspoilt and picturesque countryside and historic Lincoln, with the challenging Lincolnshire Wolds thrown in for those who like to climb. The sting in the tail is the steep cobbled climb of Michaelgate to the finish line in historic Castle Square at the bottom of Lincoln Cathedral.
Following the format of the Lincoln weekend but 3 weeks earlier in the season is the International CiCLE Classic in Oakham, Rutland. The Rutland CiCLE Tour is an integral part of a great weekend of action. The International CiCLE Classic is the only International One-Day cycle race in the UK, and ITP Events gives mere mortals the chance to ride on similar terrain in the area. Check the Events page for maps of the route.
This is followed in June by the Hope Against Cancer Leicestershire SuperTour . Run in partnership with the charity Hope Against Cancer , this charity cycle ride takes in almost a complete circuit of Leicestershire, with a run option at the end for those with the strength. Many parts of the route will be undiscovered for riders new to the area, and we are confident that you will be surprised by the varied and picturesque nature of the county. If you like a tough cycling challenge or enjoy discovering a new part of the country, then the Hope Against Cancer Leicestershire SuperTour is for you. This event will appeal to triathletes in training for an Ironman event as the long route is 112 miles with the option of a 5km run afterwards.
Followiing this in June is the barand new St Barnabas Grimsthorpe Challenge, a three route sportive starting and finishing in front of the historic Grimsthorpe Castle, near Bourne in Lincolnshire. Run in partnership with the charity St Barnabas Hospice, this event takes you on some of the quietest roads anywhere in the UK.
September sees the arrival of the Lincoln Grand Prix's sister event, Le Petit Grand Prix. As the Grand Prix Sportive, it's route is based on the Lincolnshire Wolds but is markedly different to the Grand Prix.
