The Ross Tiger offers riders a choice of two great routes. After a testing climb out of Waltham and into the edge of the Wolds, this shared start then skirts along the top of the Wolds with some fantastic views before arriving at the split point at Alford. The 100km has a relaxing route back to the HQ taking in views of the coast, whereas the 100 mile route darts two more times across the Wolds with some fantastic climbs and scenery.
We like to feed you well. At registration we give you a large flapjack from ‘Dorset Flapjacks’ (480 cal approx!) and a pack of Haribo. Once you get to the first feed station, there’s a packed lunch, a selection of teas or coffee and plenty of SIS electrolyte. If you’re on the 100 mile route the second feed station has teas and coffee, cake, fruit more Haribo and SIS, so you should be able to stay the distance!
The start HQ has plenty of car parking space, changing and shower facilities and will feature some great local cycling stands for you to browse over as well as refreshments from the in house cafe, on returning to HQ after the ride, the bar will be open if you fancy a pint!
Whichever route you choose, the choice doesn’t need to be made until the split point of the ride. We use a timing system with checkpoints so that if you started with intention of doing the 100km and you’re feeling strong, you can still decide to do the 100 miler if you wish and vice versa, we like a relaxed atmosphere for this.
A greater taster of the Lincolnshire Wolds, if you’ve never cycled in this part of Lincolnshire, these routes will certainly show you that Lincolnshire definitely isn’t flat and has some great scenery and fantastic views.
