200km cycling event starting from Oadby Youth centre42 Wigston road, LE2 5QB. Controls at Wymondham, Bosworth Battlefield Centre and Brixworth, plus 2 information controls. A 216km following quiet lanes across the crinkly, wooded countryside of East Leicestershire and Rutland to the first control just north of Wymondham.
Heading back to the west the terrain becomes gently rolling and descends to cross the Wreake and Soar flood plains before climbing over ancient Charnwood Forest en route to the second control near Market Bosworth. The countryside opens out as the ride threads between the reservoirs of Northamptonshire with some roller coaster climbs and descents on well-surfaced larger (but quiet) roads just before the final control at Brixworth. The return to Leicester passes through the smaller villages and country estates to the west of Market Harborough.
