Sigma Sports Arrow Sportive
Welcome to the

Sigma Sports Arrow Sportive

Sunday 26th May 2019

Venue: Market Rasen Racecourse, Legsby Road, Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, LN8 3EA

Taking its name from the typically flat lands in Lincolnshire and the surrounding area, you’ll glide through the level plains on the Sigma Sports' Arrow Sportive like a dart through 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 through opportunity to set your own pace on terrain that remains relatively flat.

Crossing over a series of dykes and small rivers, you’ll head to Woodhall Spa and Bucknall, where the terrain slowly begins to rise, as you cling to the Lincolnshire Wolds for the next 15 miles until the finish line is in sight, from here it is a flat run in to Market Rasen.

Times and Awards
Times and 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 our results page. 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.
