The Tour Ride Northamptonshire; The Official Sportive of the Aviva Women's Tour will make its debut appearance in the 2016 sportive calendar on Sunday 17th July.
This unique sportive gives the riders the opportunity to ride a professionally organised sportive with a direct link to one of the biggest women's bike races in the world. The routes have been painstakingly put together by a team of expert route designers with the riders' enjoyment of paramount importance. Well stocked feed stations, friendly staff, support vehicles, mechanics and event photographers will all be on site to simply add to the enjoyment of the day!
The Family Challenge Route is an excellent 10-mile route, predominantly on safe cycle tracks and bridleways, a perfect introduction to cycling for children and families with some fun and exciting activities along the route as you work way round the flat, scenic loop!
Two longer distances - a 40-mile Intermediate route and a 80-mile Pro route - take in the scenic Northamptonshire countryside using sections of this year's Women's Tour stage from Northampton to Kettering, including the Queen of the Mountain climbs!
There is truly an option for everyone. For more information visit the Tour Ride Northamptonshire website.
