200km cycling event starting from Lichfield, The Acorn Inn. Controls at Stonehurst Farm, Mountsorrel, Colsterworth A1 Services and Park Rd./ A6004 Lough'ough. Quiet flattish lanes. HQ @ Acorn Inn, Wetherspoon PH: opening early @ 7:00 am, free drink @ start. Food, drink on sale all day.
Revised 1st stage now on quiet lanes avoids previous busy A50, Measham & Ibstock.
Relatively flat and fast route mostly on quiet lanes & B roads. The first control at Stonehurst Farm (CTC listed) is a haven for local cyclists. On through Melton Mowbray to A1 Services @ Colsterworth. Back through more quiet lanes and villages to 3rd Control near Loughborough. Choice of Italian cafe (brilliant food, open until 10:00 pm). Petrol station/convenience stores for those in a hurry or McDonald's. Then return over Charnwood Forest ridge to interesting Staffordshire lanes. Only just over 200K so could be your fastest or most relaxed of 2017. No on-the-day entries.
