Welland Valley Cycling Club is teaming up with Macmillan Cancer Support for a major fundraising sportive in south Leicestershire. (Sportives are non-competitive cycling events, ridden at your own pace.)
Starting and finishing at the Langton Brewery in Thorpe Langton, near Market Harborough, the event takes place on Saturday 13th May.
Featuring three different rides of 100km, 60km and a shorter 10km Family Ride, the Macmillan Harborough Sportive is looking to raise thousands of pounds for one of the UK’s best-loved charities.
Entry fees for the 100km and 60km road rides are £25 in advance or £30 on the day; and £10 per family for the Family Ride. All fees and sponsorship monies goes towards supporting the fantastic work done by Macmillan Cancer Support.
All routes will be fully signposted, with food stops along the way, mechanical support on offer, and a broom wagon providing back up.
Refreshments and live music will greet riders at the finish line.

I've modified the provisional marshaling rota following the requests for changes that I have received.. I have also added some members to the rota who weren't on the provisional rota, so please be sure to read it carefully. The resultant document can be found here.
If the rota still doesn't work for you, please get back to me and I'll do what I can to rectify the problem.
