Info for Riders

 

Hell of the North Cotswolds (HONC) was originally conceived as an “homage” to the famous Paris – Roubaix event in France & is still run on the same day each year. It features a mass start at 09.00hr. from Winchcombe Community School near the picturesque town of Winchcombe.

It is a Non-Competitive On & Off Road Endurance Event aimed at experienced riders & is run over challenging routes across the hills and valleys of the beautiful Cotswolds, using a combination of roads, tracks and bridleways, with significant off-road sections.

You can choose on the day between a 100km route for experienced and fit riders and a 50km route for those who know just how tough the off-road Cotswold Hills can be. Alternatively you can ride a 75km route by following the 100km route to the Food Stop & then following the 50km to the finish.

Printed route maps will be available at registration.  Gpx routes will be made available to all registered riders in the week before the event. Routes will be marked by distinctive black & yellow HONC arrows.

Food & drink will be available all day at the start/finish from 07.30hr and there will also be a Food Stop at around the half way point of the 100km & 50km routes where food, water & toilets will be available.

Car Parking, changing, toilets, showers & a bike wash will be available at the start at Winchcombe Community School & a back-up cycle recovery service will be provided.

Leisure Lakes will kindly be providing a mobile repair van at the start & the food stop.

A medal will be awarded to all finishers.

Our Junior Prize Draw aims to encourage young riders to enter and we have again teamed up with the great guys at Whyte Bikes to offer a Whyte Hard Tail Mountain Bike as the prize in our draw. All U-18 riders successfully completing the event will be entered.
