2020 sees the tenth aniversary of The Paul Kirk North Lincs Cyclo Sportive. Every year, we look to keep costs down whilst improving this great event. The price is £20 + admin fee for the two shorter routes and £25 + fees for the 100 mile. The 43 mile route is ideal for those who may be wanting to try out a sportive but feel the normal distances are just a little to far.

With our ever popular feed stations offering a choice of sandwiches, wraps, tea, coffee, cake and energy bottle top ups, we keep you going to the end whichever route you choose. Can you afford to miss out on a fantastic season opener to the Sportive Season with this classic event, some great routes and fantastic support!

Entries will be available on the day (subject to maximum entries limit) priced at £25, please bring the correct cash value. Registration is open from 7am to 8:15am and you must have set off by 8:40am. All routes must be completed by 5pm.

About the event

After the sad loss of Paul Kirk during the sportive in 2011 from a previously unknown heart complaint, the North Lincs CycloSportive was permanently renamed to ‘The Paul Kirk North Lincs Cyclosportive’. Paul was a keen cyclist and charity fund raiser and this is a fitting tribute in his memory.

The sportive is organised by Lincsquad with all profits going to our chosen charities which in 2019 was over £2,000. A huge thank you to those that took part allowing us to donate this amount.
