Saturday 28 September sees the first of the season’s hugely popular Hoppers Rollers pre match cycle rides. The unique combination of cycling, rugby and great food involves a morning cycle followed by lunch and then watching the 1st XV host Leicester Lions
Meet at 7:30 for breakfast with a start of 8.15am. Lunch is served at 1.00pm with the match kicking off at 2.30. The cost is £27 to enter.
New this time there will be two routes. A Challenge Route will incorporate some iconic local hill climbs on Jeffrey Hill. The Rolling route will be a flatter course for more social riders. Both routes will be in a similar area with a café stop planned in Chipping at the Cobbled Corner Café with a coffee and a flapjack included in the price.
The ride is open to cyclists of all abilities and can be ridden socially without taking part in the time trials. Non members are also welcome so please bring your friends.
Entrants will be able to take part in a couple of ‘King of the Mountains’ time trials using Strava.
KOM 1 – Jeffrey Hill Ascent via Rock Brow
KOM 2 – Birdy Brow
Once riders return to the club they will get the chance to shower and change and enjoy a superb 3 course lunch. There will be prizes presented during lunch and then the chance to watch the 1st XV take on Leicester Lions.
