A Pair of Kirtons

600km cycling event starting from Poynton, S of Stockport. Controls at Askern, Brough, Gainsborough, Boston, Corby Glen, Donnington, Stone and Prees Heath, plus 2 information controls.

An easy 600, crossing the Pennines into Yorkshire, over the Humber Bridge, then flat all the way across Lincolnshire. Calls at Kirton in Lindsey and Kirton near Boston.

Corby Glen Village Hall (349km) allows you a mid-ride nap stop. Just hope it's not a windy day as there's nowhere to hide on Holland Fen! Night time navigation is easy, calling at Motorway services on the A1, M1 and M6 so you're sure of 24 hour facilities. Check out the Travelodge at Colsterworth if you want a shower and comfy bed (but you'll still need to reach Donington before 9:16). No EOLs but email to ask about late inclusion. See the Website link for maps, GPX, and more.
