Sunday 14th June 2015 sees the St Barnabas Grimsthorpe Challenge hit the roads of Lincolnshire, Rutland and Leicestershire.
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 ENTRY FEE FOR THE RIDE INCLUDES £4.50 ENTRANCE FEE TO THE GRIMSTHORPE ESTATE.
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.
This event helps raise funds and awareness for St Barnabas Hospice. Please consider just giving a small donation to St Barnabas so they can continue their work. You can quickly and easily donate online HERE
