Like all the routes the medium starts at the amazing GIANT Store Rutland. Heading out toward Empingham you will navigate the villages to the north of Rutland water. The route takes in Barleythorpe and Cold Overton as it winds its way to the ‘CiCLE central’ at the village of Owston where the first feed station will be along with a Schwalbe mechanical station. The medium and long spilt from the short at this point and follow the CiCLE Classic course including the pro circuit and passage through Stableford Park. After the second feed at Wymondham, the medium splits from the long and heads toward Thisleton and into Oakham and takes in some fantastic roads to the south of Rutland water as you head back to the GIANT Store Rutland for your medal, goodie bag, complimentary beer and sausage bun.

Like the CiCLE Classic elite race the CiCLE Tour Sportif features ‘pavé’ (rough terrain) sectors
Each pavé sector will have mechanical support at the end in case you get into difficulty and each pavé sector is optional and a diversion route will be signed

Pavé sectors include:
Pavé Sector 1: Barleyberg
12mi (19.3km) – 13.1mi (21.1km) | 1.1mi (1.7km)

Pavé Sector 2: Newbold Manor
26.4mi (42.3km) – 27.5mi (44.1km) | 1.1mi (1.7km)

Pavé Sector 3: Somerberg
28.5mi (45.8km) – 29.9mi (48.1km) | 1.4mi (2.3km)

Pavé Sector 4: Staple Park 
47.5mi (76.4km) – 48.7mi (78.4km) | 1.2mi (1.9km)

Total Pavé Sectors:
4.8mi (7.6km)

The CiCLE Classic goes over the same sectors several times; the CiCLE Tour Sportif will just make one pass of each sector of ‘pavé’.
