If you missed the cut off and would like to join us, please get in touch as spaces may become available nearer the time and we’re starting a reserve list.

Challenge yourself to complete the classic Derby to Skegness cycle ride, with the support of CTC Derby and Burton.

We are providing a supported programme of rides taking new cyclists from those first pedal strokes to achieving the fantastic goal of cycling the classic 100 mile Derby to Skegness route.
Rides will commence in April, starting at about 10 miles in length and building up over the summer, culminating in the challenge ride to Skegness on 9th September

  • Train on quiet local lanes
  • Support and encouragement every inch of the way
  • Friendly, experienced CTC cyclists to help and advise you
  • Quiet cycle-friendly route to Skegness
  • Return transport to Derby for you and your bike
We’ve planned a series of rides suitable for entry at any level.  All riders will need to have completed two of the longer rides and are also welcome to join any of our other rides.

Registrations have now closed.
All that’s needed is a comfortable roadworthy bike, comfortable clothing and a bit of group riding experience.   Participants are welcome to attend as many CTC Derby & Burton rides as they wish and free introductory Cycling UK membership will be arranged for the duration.  To ensure everyone is well prepared and has some group riding experience, all participants will need to have completed at least two 50+ mile rides with our club.
The event and all the rides leading up to it are free.  The only cost will be if you require transport back from Skegness for you and your bike, this is £15, (£5 deposit payable by 31st May and the balance by 31st July)
If you don’t require transport back, please still let us know you plan on joining us.
