What is the Lakeland Loop Sportive?

Address:

New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel,

Great Langdale

Cumbria

LA22 9JX 

Date and Time:

23rd April 2017 - starts from 08:00am until 09:30am 

How is the route marked?

The route will be marked with fluorescent yellow ‘CYCLE ROUTE’ signs and road warning signs where applicable. It is advisable to study the route, alternatively you can download the GPS file from the route map link.   

What do I need to do before the day?

Ensure you bike is in a roadworthy condition for the route, brakes are particularly important on the descents! Print the route card and description to bring with you, the route is well marked but this will act as a back up and also has the emergency contact numbers for the day. Bring bike tools, spares and some money, there is a small sweeper van following the last riders, but you need to ensure that you can get back if you should have mechanical difficulties. It is compulsory that you wear a hard shell cycling helmet (ANSI standard or similar). 

What do I need to do on the day?

You will need to register when you arrive and registration will be open from 8am at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. At registration you will collect your food stop wristband and timing chip. On the day the start times are between 8am and 09:30am, you choose your own start time but a maximum of 20 riders are able to start every 2 minutes. The start has to be controlled in this manner for safety reason for both public and riders. Slower riders should start early to account for the extra time required to complete the distance and faster riders should start towards the end of the field to avoid early arrival at food stops. The finish is the same location as the start. 

Food Stops:

There are two food stops on the route serving hot and cold drinks, plus a variety of refreshments. 

The Finish:

Once you have crossed under the red finish gantry, a marshal will remove the timing chip from your forks.  

Post Event Refreshments:

Food and drinks are available to be purchased at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Please feel free to pop in and treat yourself to a well deserved pint and refuel with something from their extensive and delicious food menu. 

Parking:

There is free event field parking at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. 

Toilets:

Toilets will be available in the hotel and portable toilets will also be available in the parking field.
