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 distnace 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 dpeart York at 6am and must hit cutoff times at the 4 feeds to stay in the game. Huge Lincoln 262 mile markers with have clocks on them counting down at each feed, miss the cutoff and it’s bus back for you! You’ve got 14 hours allowed time so we base the cut offs at 11.6 mph average. Sounds easy, lets see on the 12th June at the South Cave feed!

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.
