Lancashire Hotpot sportive added to calendar on September 16

Sportive organisers Kilo To Go have added the Lancashire Hotpot to their calendar of events, with the inaugural event set to provide a tough late-summer test on Sunday September 16.

The sportive starts from Blackpool Football Club and offers 115, 85 and 60-mile routes, finished in finishing in Stanley Park.

The Lancashire Hotpot takes in some of the county’s toughest climbs,  including Jeffrey Hill, Nick of Pendle, Pendle Hill, Waddington Fell and Trough of Bowland.

“The long route of 115 miles takes in all of Lancashire’s iconic cycling climbs with a total ascent of 2,500m and visits all three event feed stations,” Kilo To Go told us. “The 85-mile route misses out Nick of Pendle and Pendle Hill to bring the total climbing down to 1,500m and visits the Longridge and Ashton Memorial feed stations.

“The shorter 60-mile route ascends Jeffrey Hill, with phenomenal views from the top. This route totals 800m of climb and visits the Longridge feed station only. There’s a route for all levels of sportive riding ability.”

Entry costs £28, £31 or £34, depending on route you opt for, with £1 from every entry donated to the Rising Star Fund, a charity which gives young sportsmen and women in Lancashire financial support to enable them to excel in their chosen sport.
