New Major Event in South Lincolnshire

A major new cycle race is to be staged in South Kesteven in 2019 – starting and finishing in Bourne.

The Bourne CiCLE Classic will see professional road races for men and women, plus a Sportive event, over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September 2019 – promising significant economic benefits as well as an exciting spectacle.

South Kesteven District Council’s Visitor Economy team is organising the event and working with professional cycle event organisers including Colin Clews, responsible for the Rutland / Melton CiCLE Classic, to stage the event.

The routes, which fill a geographic race gap on the east of the UK, total 175 kilometres for men and 114 kilometres for women riders (one of the longest womens’ races in the UK calendar). It will take riders close to both Stamford and Grantham and will include historic Grimsthorpe Castle.

Coming at the end of the season, it is a golden opportunity for riders to justify their selection for the following week’s Tour of Britain and the World Championships in Yorkshire. Professional cyclists will be at the launch, including Anna Henderson and Rebecca Durrell along with Carl Lawrenson, Race Director Brian Moran and Race Advisor Colin Clews. A GoPro film of the route will be revealed as well.
