The Tour Of The Wolds is a brand new event for 2017, which follows on from the success of the National Cycling Championships in 2015 where the Time Trials were held at Cadwell Park.  The new event has Men’s and Women’s Elite races, plus a cycle sportive all based around Louth and the Lincolnshire Wolds. The weekend format is as follows:

Saturday 8th April
Tour Of The Wolds-Sportive starting in the picturesque town of Louth, the routes take in some of the UK’s quietest roads on the eastern side of the Lincolnshire Wolds. There are four distances for sportive riders, 91, 78, 54 and 30 miles, at £30 for the longer distances and £22 for the 30 mile ride.

Sunday 9th April 9am – Tour Of The Wolds (Women)
The Women’s Tour Of The Wolds is a Womens Road Series event held over 62 miles, including 3450ft of climbing. The ideal scene for some classic early season action from the top Women riders in the UK and we are sure of a worthy winner.

Sunday 9th April 12.30pm – Tour Of The Wolds (Men)
The Men’s Tour Of The Wolds is a Spring Cup Series event held over 102 miles, including 4900ft of climbing. A tough course and some inclement April weather could see some epic conditions and a tough day in the saddle for Britian’s top riders.
