Cycle for Cransley 2019

  • 23rd June 2019

By popular demand, Cycle for Cransley – Kettering’s only cycling sportive – is back for 2019!

With four exhilarating and picturesque routes through the rolling Northampton countryside, this incredible cycling challenge offers something for all ages and abilities.

There’s a 10-mile, 25-mile, 50-mile and (new for 2019) a fantastic 63-mile (100km) fondo to choose from! All rides will begin from the ‘Kettering Rugby Club’.

Thanks to generous support from our Headline sponsors ‘KLM Taxis’ and ‘Tollers Solicitors’, the event will be bigger and better than ever before.

We’re offering energising feed stations on the 25-mile, 50-mile and 63-mile routes, as well as a new and improved Event Village, with mouth-watering catering, fabulous live entertainment and thrilling activities for younger cyclists. Event partner ‘C&D Cycles’ will be on-site for all your biking needs and last-minute repairs. Once more there will be a fabulous medal for every finisher!
