TRENT VALLEY 100 - Sunday 14th October 2018
The 100 Mile route was designed with two hours of rolling roads to get those legs warmed up, a quick break at the feed stop and then it’s on to 40 miles of relentless climbing, if you aren’t going up, you are going down. The final section is a roll off the Wolds and back down deep into the Trent Valley, finished with a final climb up to HQ.
The 100km ride shares the same start to the feed stop as the 100 Mile route but then darts off across a heavily marshalled section of Lincoln (just 2 Miles) and then back out towards Scampton with a few short but sharp climbs thrown in, a great route and what a way to finish the season.
The new short route is great finish to the season and welcoming ride to anyone who is new to cycling, join us for this and who knows what you will fancy attempting next year?
A great last get together of the season with this the toughest of the 100 Series and just prove to yourself how you have improved over the season!

There are two feed stations on this route. The first at Coleby, after the Alpinesque climb providing sandwiches, crisps, cake, fruit, tea or coffee and SIS top ups. The second feed station is at Binbrook, right in the middle of the Wolds section of the ride, this feed station will be stocked with cake, bananas, tea or coffee, more Haribo and SIS, so that we keep you fueled to the end!
Medium Route - 71 Miles
The route when it splits takes riders into Lincoln to take in the sights and hills. We manage to find 24 miles of climbs for this route before returning to Gainsborough with a total of 1600ft of climbing over the whole route. We hope you enjoy this one.
Short Route - 25 Miles
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.
