ROSS TIGER 100 - Sunday 8th July 2018
We like to feed you well. At registration we give you a large flapjack from ‘Dorset Flapjacks’ (480 cal 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 station 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, changing and shower facilities and will feature some great local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments from the in house cafe, on returning to HQ after the ride, the bar will be open if you fancy a pint!
Whichever route you choose, the choice doesn’t need to be made until the split point of the ride. We use a timing system with checkpoints so that if you started with intention of doing the 100km and you’re feeling strong, you can still decide to do the 100 miler if you wish and vice versa, we like a relaxed atmosphere for this.
A greater taster of the Lincolnshire Wolds, if you’ve never cycled in this part of Lincolnshire, these routes will certainly show you that Lincolnshire definitely isn’t flat and has some great scenery and fantastic views.
Photographs will be available after the event, to download, free of charge courtesy of Adie’s Photography, a top local cycling photographer.
The Ross Tiger 100 is produced by Sportive HQ in partnership with the Lindsey Roads Club.

100 Mile Route
After darting straight across the Wolds we find you some rolling roads to have a short break before bringing you to the final sting in this tigers tail! Will you take on the challenge?
Two well stocked feed stations are provided on this route at 35 miles and 74 miles. The first feed station stocked with sandwiches, crisps, fruit, cake, tea or coffee and SIS top ups. The second feed station has tea or coffee, cake, bananas, Haribo and more SIS so you’ll be ready for the final sting in this tigers tail!
58 Mile Route
A well stocked feed station offering sandwiches, crisps, fruit, cake, tea or coffee and SIS top ups should see you through to the end.
After the split point we head east and stay on the flat away from the hills and take in some coastal views before returning to HQ. A bit more climbing on this route compared to Flat N Fast 63 mile route but a great achievement if its your first sportive season.
The Short 25 Mile Route
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.
