Market Town Ride - Strong Plus

Sunday 11th November 2012 at 9.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
The Bike Park Town Hall Square LE1 9BG
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
3 hours 5 mins  (2 hours 25 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.
Suitable for Child Trailers
Sky Ride Local
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders

Challenging rides on the road for adults only If you've been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.

A 30 mile circular ride through the beautiful Leicestershire countryside out along traffic free paths (with a short section of packed shale) in Rally Community Park to the Picturesque Market Bosworth. Along the way you will take in some wonderful scenery and maybe catch some racing as you pass the Kirby Mallory Racing Circuit! This considerable ride incorporates rural roads, the Great Central Way, Bede Park and the Ivanhoe Trail on a tour of the outlying Market Towns of Desford and Market Bosworth. It's one of our longer rides so enjoy the challenge.

If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?

  • Mokhtar Elareshi
    Mokhtar Elareshi Hi all, I'm a passionate about encouraging people to get on their bikes. I've been cycling and leading with Skyride since 2009 and I love cycling with other people and different abilities. I love those lovely Leicestershire countryside. I have cycled a few times with Leicester Forest Club but more often with Spokes. I will be assisting and leading you on rides in the Leicester and 'sometime' in Birmingham areas this season.

    I look forward to meeting you on these rides :-)
  • Mike Vybiral
    Mike Vybiral I've been organising and leading bike rides in S.E. Leicestershire for a number of years. For example: 'Summer Cycling', fortnightly 5, 15 & 25 mile rides on Wednesday evenings from the Fox & Goose, Illston-on-the-Hill; 'Macmillan Harborough 100', a 100k charity ride from the Langton Brewery, Thorpe Langton, (which raised £7,500); 'Welland Wonders', a choice of 50, 100 & 160k rides from Husbands Bosworth, which raises £500 for a range of charities. I'm also a member of the Welland Valley Cycle Club, which organises a whole range of bike-related activities for all ages, in and around the Harborough area.
