Pearson's Rutland Classic




Ride Type Distance Elevation Gain


A lovely 3-hour road ride from Cafe Ventoux, a well-known cycling Cafe in Leicestershire (with parking if you want to drive to do the start.)

From Ventoux, you head north on some typical Leicestershire lanes before taking in the climb of Burrough on the hill - there's an ice-cream van at the top for those taking on the route in the Summer months to stop and have a screwball or 99.

After descending you'll ride a lot of the roads used in the UCI Rutland Cicle classic before heading around Rutland Water's North and east shore, before heading through the market town of Uppingham. Stop at one of the many cafes and shops before taking on a couple of challenging climbs on the way back to Ventoux.
