Annual cycling challenge gears up for good causes

Rugby Editorial 15th Aug, 2022   0

HUNDREDS of cyclists are gearing up for an annual challenge which has raised around £30,000 for charity over the last decade.

The tenth Lutterworth Big Bike Ride will set off from Misterton Hall on Sunday (August 21), with a choice of four routes ranging from 11 to 67 miles.

A spokesman for Lutterworth Rotary Club, which organises the event, said previous events have attracted over 600 riders, at least half of whom cycled over 60 miles.

He added: “The routes are selected to follow quieter country lanes in the beautiful surroundings of rural Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

“The long route takes riders on a journey through the Langtons beyond Market Harborough to Eyebrook Reservoir.

“The 39 and 67 mile routes also have the distinction of running directly through the Naseby battlefield site and many sections follow the National Cycle Network.”

Individuals, families and teams representing local businesses and clubs are all welcome.

Pre-booked entry costs £13, or £15 on the day, per adult and £5 for under-16s, including a hog roast or vegetarian alternative when riders complete the circuit and arrive back at Misterton Hall.

Visit to enter in advance.

Funds raised will go to Epilepsy Action, Cystic Fibrosis and Rotary charities in the UK and overseas.
