Cycling enthusiasts of Nottinghamshire will be thrilled to hear that Cycle Live Nottingham has officially opened entries for all routes available in the Great Notts Bike Ride, which will take place on Sunday 25th June 2017.
The annual cycling event expanded the routes available last year, adding a much more challenging 125 mile ride, and a mid-range 75 mile ride. This helped the weekend enjoy one of the most successful years to date with over 4,000 cyclists taking to the Nottinghamshire countryside.
Nik Emmonds, Account Director for Events at Nottingham based Perfect Motion, who organises Cycle Live Nottingham, said;
“We were delighted with the response to the 125 and 75 mile rides that we added in 2016 and also to the rebrand of the rides. As with all changes, we received some feedback that we’ve taken on board and as such the 75 mile ride has been rebranded as the Maid Marian this year. Nottinghamshire’s most famous heroine is now the face of one of the longer rides and we hope that will inspire people to step up.
“2017 will also be the first time in several years that timing chips are available to participants. Whilst we stress that the routes are rides rather than races, we know that many participants like to track their times.
“As always, the rides do sell out so we urge all potential participants to secure their places early to avoid disappointment!”
Whether you are after your next big challenge, or a weekend cycle with the family, entries are now open for; The Robin Hood (25 miles), The Friar Tuck (50 miles), The Maid Marian (75 miles), The ‘Little’ John (100 miles) and The Sheriff (125 miles), all of which will take place on Sunday 25th June 2017.
