TRENT VALLEY 100 - Sunday 14th October 2018
The other thing we like to do is 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 space, changing and shower facilities and will feature some good local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments by the Coffee Stop.
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 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!

Long Route - 100 Miles
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.
