Entries into the 100 mile route at the 2014 Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport) Great Notts Bike Ride are very nearly full. The ride, which sold out in advance of last year’s event is set to reach capacity over the next few weeks. The 25 and 50 mile distances have also seen more entries than the same time in previous years.
The ever popular bike ride will be returning for its 33rd year on 22nd June 2014 and is set to be the biggest to date. Over 5000 participants will take part, with a further 5000 spectators expected to visit the event over the weekend.
Event Director, Chris Simon, said; “The popularity of the Cerebral Palsy Sport Great Notts Bike Ride is as high as ever and entries are ahead of where they have been in previous years. We expect entries for the 100 mile ride to sell out in advance of the event, so I would urge anyone still hoping for a place to sign up quickly to avoid disappointment”.
In addition to the 100 mile ride and perfect for beginners is the 25 mile route which offers a highly enjoyable route through sleepy Sunday villages surrounded by beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside. Middle ground can be found with the 50 mile route which is the event’s signature ride. The 25 and the 50 mile rides are perfect for those looking for a challenge, or just a step up from the shorter distances.
All three rides include several feed stations en route where cyclists can take a breath and refuel during the ride.
The ride is a part of Cycle Live Nottingham, a two day festival of cycling taking place on Nottingham’s Victoria Embankment on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of June 2014.
Cycle Live weekend kicks off with the family-friendly Nottingham City Ride and high-octane Nottingham Grand Prix on Saturday, followed by the 2014 Cerebral Palsy Sport Great Notts Bike on the Sunday. Over the weekend, visitors can enjoy the lively and vibrant event village which features an array of different activities and events suitable for all the family.
Chris continued, “Cycle Live contains something for everyone who is passionate about cycling, from beginner level participation through to elite racing. The event village will be filled with fun things for all the family, so it’s not just about partaking in the bike rides. It’s set to be our busiest event yet, it really shouldn’t be missed”.
