    The first Leicester Forest Cycling Club sportive will take place on the morning of the city’s Castle Classic event on 17th August, 2014.

    The sportive, promoted by ourselves, Leicester City Council and British Cycling, is aimed at improving riders and will cover a scenic 100km route to the south and west of the city.

    Riders will roll-out under the start/finish gantry that will be used later for the Elite level race that forms parts of British Cycling's Elite Men's National Grand Prix series.

    There will be a feed-station midway around the signed route that takes in several of Leicestershire’s historic sites.Electronic chip timing will record rider’s results as they finish the route, again on the race’s finish line.

    Riders will be treated to a 'Pint and Pie' upon completion and can relax and watch the top professional teams compete in the Leicester Castle Classic, an exciting Kermesse style race taking place along the Mile Straight and Castle Gardens.

    Entries are now open on the British Cycling website and are limited to 200.Sign up here:
