The Trent Valley 100 offers three fantastic routes. The 100 miler circumnavigates Lincoln and takes riders into the Lincolnshire Wolds for some hill climbs before returning to HQ. The 100km route shares the first 35 miles as the 100 mile route and then takes in the sites of Lincoln itself bringing riders through to the finish back at Gainsborough. With an entry fee of £22.50 it's a great value event to end the Season.
The other thing SportiveHQ like to do is feed you well. At registration they give you a large flapjack from ‘Dorset Flapjacks’ and a pack of Haribo. Once you get to the first feed station, there’s a packed lunch, a selection of teas or coffee and plenty of SIS electrolyte. If you’re on the 100 mile route the second feed station has teas and coffee, cake, fruit more Haribo and SIS.
The start HQ has plenty of space, changing and shower facilities and will feature some good local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments by the Coffee Stop.
New for 2018 with a £15.00 entry is the ‘short’ route of 25 Miles, this route doesn’t have a feed stop on the road but the price includes hot food and a cuppa on return. A great last get together of the season with this the toughest of the 100 Series
