The long is a challenging 100 mile route with plenty of undulating! No mountains but a total vert of 1,474m which isn’t insignificant. The route is a splendid figure of 8 and we’ve really put some miles in to crack this one! We twist and turn through what has got to be one of the most amazing parts of the UK. Villages, castles, lanes, lakes, fast sections, bergs.

We stop at Scalford Village Hall for feed 1 breakfast stop, then onto Harby Village Hall for a full-fat feed then back to Scalford for feed 3, again full fat. An awesome selection of fresh sarnies, pies, sausage rolls, cakes and a brew! One of the few rides you’ll go home heavier than you arrived!

Lots of miles = lots of smiles on this long route. It’s very much designed that way. Ride in groups, make new friends, have a great laugh with the feed stations teams. It’s all about having a cracking ride as well as a great fun day out!

Make the most of the King’s Jubilee Bank Holiday day and get to the Show Ground early on the Saturday, we’ll be showing the Jubilee Live on the big screen, you can enjoy the celebrations with us, watch the riders enjoying 2 Days in Rutland | A Tour and the evening Q&A with a pro rider on the stage!
