Rutland Cycling - Winner of the Bike Biz Award for Best Independent Retailer 2013

In partnership with our friends at Giant, Rutland Cycling plays host to a permanent sportive that can be ridden any day of the year. With two routes options there is something for the seasoned sportive rider who wants to tackle the full 96 mile loop and a shorter option of 62 miles for those feeling a little less energetic.

Collect your timing chip and weather proof route map from the Giant Store on Rutland Water and off you go. There is even the option of hiring a top of the range road bike if you fancy trying to emulate Luis Léon Sanchez from the Rabobank Pro Cycling team.

Intermediate timing stations are located along the route so you can keep an eye on how well you perform over the entirety of the route and allow you to pause your time when it comes to stopping for that all important tea stop.

Finishing the route off at the Giant store, all that is left to do is hand in your timing card and see how you stack up against everyone else.
