About the event

C2C2C is a charity cycle ride across Lincolnshire. In the first year the ride was from Lincoln Castle to the coast and back to the castle but as numbers grew it became more difficult to ride safely into Lincoln.

There are 2 routes - 100 miles with 3,500' of gentle climbing or 200km, which includes The Appendix (the pointless bit in the middle), and has 5,000' of climbing.

Most people ride in teams and the size of your team is only limited by how many people you know/will ride with you! However, we do recommend riding in groups of less than 8.

Some people ride all of it, some ride in relay. Mountain bikes, the latest carbon fibre aero models, tandems, hire bikes, recumbents or a Brompton- it doesn't matter what you ride, so long as you power it yourself.

We have had many riders complete 100 miles for the first time on C2C2C so as long as you train (a bit) before the ride you will get back for a beer and BBQ. The more you train the better you will feel at the end of the ride.

Get Involved

Entry is via charitable donation of £40 per rider (plus £1.50 to cover the insurance cost per rider), and your team can be as big or small as you like (as this is an unsupported ride we recommend you ride in teams).

If you are unable to enter as a team enter anyway and you will find riders of similar speed to you to ride with on the day

If you also want to raise sponsorship from friends, colleagues, customers or suppliers, then you can either raise it for our chosen charities, or for a charity of your choice but please do let us know what you have raised.
