The Flat 100 South – Info
With some minor undulations as we leave Peterborough towards Yaxley, this is probably one of flattest 100-mile routes around. From Yaxley we head in the direction of Holme, Ramsey then onwards to skirt around Chatteris before getting close to the edge of Downham Market. Our turning point is nearly as far as Kings Lynn before we turn back East towards Peterborough. The hills might not be challenging on this but the one thing with the fens, the wind will always find you.
If you’re new to sportive riding then this 65-mile route is a perfect way to move up to a greater distance, not challenging with hills but still achievable if you’ve never managed this far before. The turning point is after the Feed station at Manea where you head North towards March before turning back East towards the finish line in Peterborough.
This 22-mile route is perfect if you’ve never taken part in a cycling event before, there’s no time limit, a fully signed route and a support number and vehicles on the route to look after you, a feed stop just after halfway in Ramsey St Mary will have all the food you’ll need. Give it a go, it’s a great way to spend the day!
