The Grange Spa Sportive is the next instalment of new events hosted by Trident Sports Events. In conjunction with ‘The Grange Spa’ we are excited to bring you this brand new cycling adventure. With the start & finish set in the fantastic grounds of a multi-award winning Spa you will get a sense of what is to come right from the offset. As you leave the tranquil surroundings of the spa behind you will be treated to some of the very best views Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire has to offer. However, as you have come to expect from Trident Sports Events, the experience doesn't end there, when you return to the Spa you will be treated to a mini welcoming party including hot food for all competitors, a live band, fun and games for spectators and families alike and stalls to tempt you with new purchases. This really will be a day for all the family.
In order to cater for everyone we have three options for you to choose from:
The Short Option (20 Miles)
This route will be ideal for the beginner cyclist or families who want a route to complete together. Heading out of the stunning village, riders will pass through Billingborough and towards Horbling before taking the scenic west bound journey. Carefully selected, this route is on quite rolling country roads with minimal traffic to ensure riders of all abilities can feel safe and enjoy the Sportive.
Minimum rider age is 10 years old, any entrant under the age of 18 (eighteen) years on the day of the event must be accompanied by a nominated adult at all times during the event.

The Medium Option (50 Miles)
This route is aimed at the more dedicated cyclist or those of you who want to test yourself. With over 2000ft of elevation this will definitely quash the myth that Lincolnshire is flat. Again heading out in a westerly direction riders will skirt south of Grantham before heading down towards the picturesque county border with Rutland. This route will have an aid station at around 30 miles before cyclists head back through the stunning towns of Castle Bytham, Swayfield and Grimsthorpe to name a few. As with all our routes they are ridden in an anticlockwise direction to minimise turning across traffic and we have tried to avoid as many busy, major roads as possible to ensure the best possible riding experience.
Minimum rider age is 14 years old, any entrant under the age of 18 (eighteen) years on the day of the event must be accompanied by a nominated adult at all times during the event.

The Long Option (100 miles)
Are you up for the Trident challenge? This option is not for the faint hearted. 106.2 miles. 4855ft of elevation. Steepest climb 11%. The course is ready are you? Aimed at the keen cyclists, this Long course should have a little something for everyone. As with the Medium route, riders will get to visit the aid station at 30 miles and then again at 75 miles. Crossing through three counties and multiple districts riders will be treated to some amazing views, challenging climbs, fast descents, twists and turns etc. This really will offer every rider a complete experience. Please note riders who have not made it to the first aid station by 11:30 will be directed onto the medium course
Minimum rider age is 16 years old, any entrant under the age of 18 (eighteen) years on the day of the event must be accompanied by a nominated adult at all times during the event.

The Long Option: 7:00am - 9:00am

This will be a chip timed event with a fully signposted route and site parking included in the entry fee. Although there will be signs throughout the route, we strongly encourage all participants to download the route from our website and load into a suitable head unit or GPS device. Furthermore, we also promote all entrants to download the ‘What Three Words’ app available on Android and Apple. This will significantly improve the ability to locate you, or a fellow rider in the case of an emergency. Entrants will receive a drink, hot meal (selection to be made at time of entry, please see menu options HERE), finishers medal and goodie bag. Entries will close on 29th June.
