Tour De Leicestershire

Get on your bike and cycle for a cause on our annual non-competitive cycling sportive

Every year we see around 200 riders join us to cycle and support the work of Open Hands charity. The ride costs £35 per rider (plus a £1 admin fee) and every penny of profit will be invested into the work of Open Hands.

This year’s ride will be taking place on Saturday 12th September 2020. There are three distances to choose from depending on your preference – 22, 50 or 88 miles. This year’s route will circle Leicester in an anti-clockwise direction following cycle route 50 to the southern most tip of the county, it then heads up to Hungarton Farm before bordering Rutland.  The return stretch will take riders over the traditional killer ‘Old John’, but not before stopping for a rest and some ‘rocky road’.  The ride ends back at Bosworth Academy with a celebratory BBQ.

All routes start and finish at Bosworth Academy car park, Desford (LE9 9JL). Cyclists should arrive between 7:30-8am on Saturday 12th September 2020.

We look forward to you joining us!
