The 40-mile bike ride started and finished at Belvoir Castle, in between meandering through the picturesque villages of Strathern, Harby, Langar, Colston Bassett, Hose, Eastwell, Branston, Knipton, Denton and Woolsthorpe by Belvoir.
We are all experienced cyclists, but 40 miles is probably a bit further than we would normally ride, so this would stretch us all more than usual. The ride attracts hundreds of participants each year, and is very well organised, with marshalls and refreshment stops around the route. Participants have a choice of either 25 or 40 miles.
Nevertheless, the ride was most enjoyable, the views of rural Leicestershire were lovely, and we raised £1,047.30 for the British Heart Foundation.
Footnote: Nick thanks members of staff who sponsored the ride - and would like to remind anyone who hasn't yet paid sponsorship money!
