KING EDWARD 100 - Sunday 6th May 2018

After a little pressure from our regular riders who have been asking for an extra event this year, Sportive HQ brings you the King Edward 100, promising an HQ in a great, easy access location – Newark Showground – and plenty of new routes around the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire lanes.

The ‘King Edward 100’ brings all of the Sportive HQ style of doings things – a big event at small event prices.

We do allow Time Trial bikes, aero bars etc, in fact we do allow all bikes types as agreed by our insurer.

The other thing we like to do is feed you well. At registration we give you a large flapjack from ‘Dorset Flapjacks’ (480cal approx!) and a pack of Haribo. Once you get to the first feed station, there’s a packed lunch, a selection of teas or coffee and plenty of SIS electrolyte. If you’re on the 100 mile route, the second feed stations has teas and coffee, cake, fruit, more Haribo and SIS, so you should be able to stay the distance!

The start HQ has plenty of car parking space, and will feature some good local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments by the Coffee Stop.

If you are doing either the long or medium routes, please feel free to change on the day itself, just let us know when you get back if you changed routes, we like a relaxed atmosphere for this.

New for 2018 is the ‘short’ route of 25 miles. This route doesn’t have a feed stop on the route but the price includes hot food and cuppa on return.

There will be free photos to download from Adie’s Photography, a top local cycling photographer.

We hope that after you’ve tried the King Edward 100, you’ll be hooked on our value for money sportives where a great day out on the bike is all that matters.

Let everyone know you're going!

Tickets: From £15
Online entry closes at midnight on 5th May.

100 Mile Route

The first of our 100 mile routes of the year and the King Edward 100 starts with the hills at the beginning just to see how your winter training has paid off!

Get the hills out of the way and take a break at the first feed stop and make your mind up if you’re going for the 100 miler or just the 83!

As always with Sportive HQ, you can guarantee a well marked route and over-stocked feed stations.

The King Edward 100 is the great new season opener for the Roux Bikes 100 Series, come join us for a great day out.

83 Mile Route

Sharing the first 50 miles with the 100 mile course, the 83 mile route is perfect if your training isn’t quite ready for 100 miles at the start of the season. At 83 miles and 2000 ft of climbing, it’s great practice for the Flat n Fast 100 (2nd June)!

Again you will find a well marked route and plenty of food choice at the feed station, along with hot drinks and isotonic drinks.

We always promise a great day out, some great routes, all at affordable prices.

23 Mile Route

The ‘short’ route is just 23 miles, perfect for anyone who is new to cycling and would appreciate a supportive environment to enjoy a ride.

This route doesn’t have a feed stop on the road but the price includes hot food and a cuppa on return.

Event Jerseys

You can order a King Edward 100 jersey online and it will be delivered one week before the event!

This Pactimo Continental Standard Short Sleeve Jersey is great quality. It is classed as a race fit jersey (quite tight) so if you want something a little looser then go one size up.
