Where: Sigma Sports Store, Oakham, Rutland

The Spring Classics are here, and we want you to have a slice of the action. On Saturday 22nd April, we’re hosting the Sigma Sports x Hotchillee Rutland Classic Rideout. Ride out with Hotchillee from the Sigma Sports store in Oakham, and tackle some of the most famous sections of the Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic route.

Our ride takes place the day before the UCI men’s race comes to town! In true Spring Classics fashion, you too can test your mettle on parcours that could easily feel at home on the cobbled lanes of Flanders, or the white gravel roads of Tuscany.

If you’re a seasoned rider of the Rutland CiCLE Tour Sportive, you’ll no doubt have been disappointed by the cancellation of this year’s event. We’re offering the perfect alternative, and a great way to kickstart your social cycling season. And if you’ve never ridden in Rutland, you’re in for a treat with two stunning routes to choose from.

The ride

This is a group ride with a difference. With ten groups heading out on the day, the Hotchillee Ride Captains will help you find the right group for your ability, and our ‘no drop’ policy ensures you won’t ride alone.

Are you up for the challenge? Sign up today via Hotchillee at the incredible price of just £15.
