Welcome!

Introduction

This is the 13th annual Welland Wonders event. As in previous years the event is governed by audax uk, a long-distance cycling club which provides insurance, documentation and handles the entries. Audax events are organised by different cycle clubs right across the UK. This one is organised by Welland Valley Cycle Club, based in Market Harborough.

The rides, on quiet country roads, are intended to be leisurely – certainly not races.

All proceeds go to charity.

This year: 

  • British Heart Foundation
  • Air Ambulance
  • SANDS
  • Whizz Kids (Bike training for young people in the Harborough area)

The Rides

The rides, on quiet country roads, are intended to be leisurely – certainly not races.  Each year riders comment on the beauty of the landscape and those from farther afield are surprised to find the area quite hilly!

There are three routes, nominally 50, 110 & 160km. (33, 68 & 100 miles).  They are not signed so you need to be prepared! Check the routes online or manually. There are links below to route sheets, online maps and gpx files to make preparation easier.

You will have a card to record your progress. It will need to be stamped at checkpoints and, in addition, there will be ‘information controls’ asking you to record a detail nearby, e.g. the colour of a ribbon.

All rides start and finish at the Husbands Bosworth Sports Pavilion, on the left, 300 metres west of Husbands Bosworth (towards Lutterworth).

Check the route information below before entering.
