Big Bike Ride, Sunday, 21st August, 2022.

Lutterworth Rotary Club will be running its 10th Big Bike Ride on Sunday 21st August. The event starts and finishes at Misterton Hall [LE17 4JP] and, as in past years, there will be four route choices; 11, 23, 39 and 67 miles all  following the same sign-marked routes as previous years. 

The long route, at 67 miles, takes  riders on a journey through the Langtons beyond Market Harborough to Eyebrook Reservoir. All routes are selected to follow, as far as possible, quieter country lanes in the beautiful surroundings of rural Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.  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. 

Previously the event has attracted over 600 riders, at least half of whom cycled the 67 miles route. 

The Big Bike Ride is organised by Lutterworth Rotary Club with the kind permission of Mrs Heather Craven, owner of Misterton Hall. Entries are encouraged from families as well as individuals and also from teams representing local businesses & clubs. 

Entries can be made either online at Entry Central before the event or in person on the day. Online entries cost £13 and those made on the day are £15. The under-16 price is £5. Included in the entry price is a hog roast or vegetarian alternative to be enjoyed at the finish.
