Lincoln 262 is a massive challenge!

262 is well into our Ultra Challenge Event Series joining The Peak, The Beast and Everest as super tough, really special events.

Riders looking for a personal distance record, a fastest average speed or to beat last year’s time. You all dash over the line excited but exhasuted from one of the year’s best events!

For 2024 we’ve mixed it up! The most exciting “out and back” you’ll ever ride! We now reach Lincoln and complete a lap of the famous City with the cobbled ascent to The Cathedral. Follow yellow signs out, red signs back. Had enough at any point, just U-Turn and head home!

We’ve run 262 for 3 years and you all come back celebrating the support, atmosphere and route.

This is one of the most accessible and exciting Ultra Challenge Events in any calednar.

We love 262 and the 2024 reinvented version will be a really special one!

See you back at York, IF you make it.
