Take part in sportive which covers almost a complete circuit of Leicestershire. I have designed the routes for this event to serve the purposes of all types of rider from a variety of backgrounds. The routes are hilly in places but rolling others, so you will get the chance to ride at a good average speed in a group, giving you the chance to ride for the day with friends and make new aquaintances on the road. The Leicestershire SuperTour is a sportive which takes advantage of the varied nature of Leicestershire terrain, combining the tough hills of the Charnwood forest with rolling and flat sections where riders can move at a good speed and nudge up the average. THERE IS A 5KM RUN OPTION FOR TRIATHLETES AT THE END OF EACH RIDE DISTANCE. The run route is through the University campus and an almost traffic free lane. A map can be found on the route link below.
There are six options, a 112 mile cycle ride, an 85 mile ride and a 64 mile cycle ride, all of which can be done with the 5km run. The feedstations on the long route are Bagworth (40km), Great Bowden (96km), Gaddesby (146km). On the medium route at Bagworth (40km) Gaddesby (94km). Short route Bagworth (40km).
