Following on from the successes of the our first, second and now third cycle sportives, incorporating the iconic Humber Bridge, which is still the longest suspension bridge in the world to allow cyclists and pedestrians to cross it – we are pleased to have set a date for the 2017 Sportive!
The fourth Humber Bridge Sportive will be held on June 18th, 2017. The event will be based at the Hesslewood Office Park on Ferriby Road, and we are very grateful to Brooklands Property for agreeing to host us, and for giving us their full support – www.brooklandsproperty.co.uk
In response to numerous requests, we have also added a third route – a 42 miler! Pre-ride refreshments will be available and there will be well-stocked feed stations, together with a voucher for refreshments upon completion of the ride! The ride will continue to support The Ellie Penrose Fund together with other local charities.
We are hopeful of having a dedicated pathway for riders, but this will depend on the building plans proposed by The Bridge Board. The updated short and long route will be published soon, with the only difference being the start/finish location which will be at Hesslewood Hall, off Ferriby Road.

The 3 routes of 22, 42 and 62 miles, will take in the quiet roads of North Lincs, offering spectacular views across to Lincoln Cathedral and over the Humber estuary.
The longer route will head towards the market town of Caistor, before tracking down to the river Humber, and then return to cross the Humber Bridge via Goxhill and Barton.
