Leicester Castle Classic Weekend: King of the Cobbles

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August 2015

This year’s weekend starts with a sportive challenge linking Leicester Castle with Bosworth on Saturday followed by a triathlon starting at QEII Leicester Centre on Sunday morning.

Support races in the afternoon are followed by the Castle Classic Kermesse – ‘One of the best races in the country’ according to last year’s winner Jon Mould – the finale of British Cycling’s Elite Road Series 2015. The Castle Classic Kermesse will be filmed for broadcast on Eurosport TV.

Leicester has submitted a bid for a major programme to develop Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle (EAPC) hubs.

Leicester City Council and Leicester-based sustainable travel specialist, Go Travel Solutions, have successfully progressed through the Expression of Interest stage. A full application has now been submitted to apply for a share of the £500,000 funding that the Department for Transport has made available for cities, rural areas and tourism hotspots in England, outside of London, to develop shared Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle (EAPC) hubs.


Please find details in the link below of new campaign which is valid both to London and from London. Tickets must be purchased between 3-9 August but travel can be completed by 4 September 2015.
