Race Harborough are delighted to announce the return of their Festival of Cycling for an 8th year on Sunday, 8th October.

With ride HQ located at Marston Lodge, near Market Harborough, there are three distance options available.

Newly designed 100k and 50k road routes perfectly complement a newly designed 70k off-road option suitable for cross and MTB. All routes take in the beautiful countryside, rolling roads and tracks through South Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

Mary Pearson, owner of Race Harborough, said: “We’re really pleased to have opened entries for the Festival of Cycling this week. It’s a great event, set in wonderful countryside, and we have brand new routes across all distances this year.

“We’re very grateful for the support of a number of local riders who have researched, ridden, and shaped the routes that we’re sure will prove very popular with riders of all abilities.

“In addition to the halfway feed station at Lubenham VIllage Hall, that provides a variety of hot and cold sweet and savoury snacks for the riders, there’s also a hot meal provided at the finish, free event photos, and a bespoke commemorative medal for each rider.”
