Entries on the day are being accepted for this event at £30. PLEASE SEE THE INSTRUCTIONS SECTION OF THIS SITE ON TUESDAY EVENING.
Start and finish in front of the impressive 16th century Grimsthorpe Castle in south Lincolnshire, with the first 5 miles of all routes on a traffic-free tarmac trail through the historic grounds and woodlands of the Grimsthorpe Estate. The longer routes are £29 and the shortest £26. For riders, the entrance fee to the estate is included in the event entry fee.If anyone accompanies you to the event they will be charged £4 to enter the estate. It is a per person charge, not per car. Please note that as the estate is closed to the public the tearoom and shops will be closed. The grounds and gardens will be open.
After that the on-road routes are not much busier as you turn to the north of the Estate onto the quiet lanes of South Lincolnshire before turning south to Head for the more challenging Rutland and Leicestershire roads.
There are four routes to choose from, 115 miles, 76 miles, 55 miles and 25 miles, with the longest route also being hillier.
There are three feeds on the longest route, two on the medium route, one on the shortest and none on the 25. Post event food will be provided as part of the entry fee.
