Lincoln 262 is a massive challenge! We wanted to offer a Super Challenge Sportive to riders as part of their Beast prep but also to offer a different day out in the ultra distance area of Sportive riding.

We’ve made the route as flat as possible but managed to retain what you’d expect from Velo29, fun, diverse, scenic and memorable. You’ll depart York at 6am and must hit cutoff times at the 5 feeds to stay in the game, miss the cutoff and it’s bus back for you! You’ve got 14 hours allowed time so we base the cut offs at 12.5 mph average. Sounds easy, lets see back in York!

Riders looking for a personal record, a fastest average speed or some final Beast prep will love this event. Sure to be a sellout, get your place now!

An awesome 262 medal awaits you back at York, IF you make it.
