For the fourth year, Open Hands Tour De Leicestershire will circumnavigate the city starting and ending at Bosworth Academy, Desford. This 80 or 56 mile sportive begins with quite a bit of climbing through the Charnwood Hills, before returning to the Dixon's farm in Hungarton for early lunch. Every year most of the route is new.
The aim of the ride is to participate in a well organised challenging cycle ride and provide valuable funds for Open Hands, Leicester.
The 2017 ride will take place on 9th September 2017, departing at 8.00am from the Bosworth Academy Car Park.
The entry fee is £30 per rider plus a £1 admin charge which goes to British Cycling. Entry is via the British Cycling website at:
The event will raise money for Open Hands through the entry fees. If you would like to help us raise more money, please consider collecting sponsorship to do the ride by setting up your own ‘JustGiving’ site via http://www.justgiving.org.uk.
More detailed information about the ride will follow when you sign up, but maps of the route are available below:
This year we have two routes at 80 miles and 56 miles.
