Cycling in the Vale of Belvoir

The Vale of Belvoir with it’s pretty quiet lanes is a cycling paradise. Miles of flat, quiet roads, or the challenge of some pretty steep hills across the ridge, one of which features in Simon Warrens’ ‘Top 100 Climbs‘. There are plenty of places to stop for a well earned coffee & cake too! (or maybe a pint)

Joining a cycling club is a great way to improve your fitness, social circle and knowledge of routes. There are some great clubs based in the Vale, to follow are details of local clubs who are recognised by British Cycling.

If you would like to enter a cycling event locally why not take a look at these for some inspiration.

Alternatively, if you are going it alone and would like some inspiration for cycling routes…..

You’ll always need a great cafe to stop at for a well earned break! Or pub….?
