Like all the routes the short starts Rutland Showground. Heading out toward Empingham you will navigate the villages to the north of Rutland water. With narrow, quiet lanes almost all the way around its a fantastic route for all abilities. One of the main focal points of the CiCLE Classic elite race is Owston and this is where the first feed station will be along with a Schwalbe mechanical station. It is also where the short route splits from the medium and long so look out for signs when you depart the feed. The short now 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)

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