CiCLE Classic returns for its tenth year this weekend - 26th/27th April. We're excited that this race takes place in our backyard and will be offering a range of things to do throughout the whole weekend.
Dare2b Supa Sportive
We've teamed up with the Dare2b Supa Sportive series to offer a range of sportives the day before the big race. You'll be able to tackle the same route as the professionals will ride on Sunday or experience shorter parts of the course, there's a sportive for everyone:
- 21 Miles - Short, non-hilly sportive that is ideal for completely new riders
- 59 Miles - Slightly challenging ride that is perfect for riders new to sportives
- 75 Miles - A hard, long yet rewarding ride that takes in picturesque lanes and villages in Rutland, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire
- 100 Miles - Almost 5000 feet of climbing, this route is for experience riders who want to ride the same routes as the professional racers
All routes apart from the shortest will have feed stations. There will also be a competition for anyone who rides in the sportives to win one of two places available in a support car during the race on Sunday.
Exclusive Offers and Free Bike Checks
Throughout the CiCLE Classic Weekend we'll be offering free bike safety checks, roadside repair session, nutrition talks and plans. Our stores will also have exclusive offers on essential road kit for the weekend including a Giant Starter Pack that is ideal for new riders.
The Race Itself
This is what the weekend is all about, the 10th Anniversary of the CiCLE Classic race, with both a professional and junior race there is enough action to fill a whole day. We'll be leading a ride out from our Giant Store to take in the action from key advantage points including the famous Somerberg off road section and hot spot sprint through Oakham.
