Cycling Weekly The Arrow

Now in its second year, the Arrow has moved to a bigger and better equipped event centre to cope with the demand for this excellent event.

Based in North Lincolnshire, home of the Lincolnshire Wolds and an area of outstanding natural beauty. With 3 route options this is a perfect sportive to suit all levels of riders. The course can be described as flat and rolling so is perfect for riders looking to rack up the miles or complete their first sportive.

Starting off at Market Rasen Racecourse we head south, immediately out on to quiet, traffic free, open country roads. Before heading for Lincoln the short course splits at Bardney, here the epic and standard courses cross the River Witham before hugging its banks through Washingborough, where we find our first feed stop on the outskirts of Lincoln. With a quick view of Lincoln Cathedral we again strike south to Metheringham for the Standard split.

The Epic riders will head as far south as Ruskington to then head north for an experience of miles of straight roads that surround the Wolds, here you can really open up and cover some ground. Cutting through many of the areas smaller enclosures, we pass by the old roman town of Horncastle before diving into the Lincolnshire Wolds for our final stretch back to the finish.

At the finish a warm welcome, massages, refreshments and a Finishers Medal will be waiting.

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.


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