Cycling Weekly The Arrow

Taking its name from the typically flat lands in Lincolnshire and the surrounding area, you’ll glide through the level planes on this sportive like a dart though the air – save for an unlikely uphill test that waits for tired legs at the end of the ride.

You’ll start out on Market Rasen Racecourse and head south, straight onto quiet roads. The first part of the course points more downhill than the even gradient the area is famous for – so make the most of the slightly sloping angle as you pass through sleepy village after sleepy village, linked by unspoilt country lanes. Heading towards Lincoln, the first climb of the day will present itself just after Canwick. It’s steep, but quick and easy to deal with after a little exertion.

Once this has passed, it’s onto the long, straight open roads as far south as Ruskington in the North Kesteven District – giving you good opportunity to set your own pace on terrain that remains relatively flat.

Crossing over a series of dykes and small rivers, you’ll head through Woodhall Spa and Bucknall, where the terrain takes an unexpected turn and slowly begins to rise, almost all the way until the finish line. For around 15 miles, the gradient will rise discreetly, which may prove uncomfortable over a prolonged period of time but presents no serious climbing hills on the way towards the Tealby peak.

With this long hill conquered, it’s a downhill free-for-all towards the finish line back in Market Rasen. This ride is a great opportunity to test your mettle on the bike allowing you to really open up and cover the ground at a decent pace.

Key Information

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £3.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the 'Pre entered collection point' and avoid having to queue up. Please note: if a event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

On the day entry

On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £3.00 per person surcharge. Payment can be made with cash or cheque. You can fill out an entry form when you arrive at the event. One entry form must be completed per person. Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.

Event photography by SportivePhoto

SportivePhoto will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
