The Mighty Corinthian

A Lake District Grand Tour

June 25 2016

The Longest One Day Classic Bike Ride in the World!

Sportive lakesThe Mighty Corinthian is just like a one day classic from back in the day. Big distances, lots of climbing, spectacular locations – all ridden on vintage steel bicycles in period kit! The only difference is that you’ll receive the now famous levels of Sportive Lakes support and you’ll be really well fed! So, fish out the Fausto Coppi outfit, polish up the old Raleigh and let’s go!

The Mighty Corinthian showcases the finest of the Lake District landscapes – coastal plains, wild moors, arable farm land, wonderful villages, the odd mountain pass and just a few lakes! Due to the length of the event, we’ve missed some of the steepest climbs to give you the best chance of success. This isn’t about going fast; it’s about having a huge experience with like-minded people, it’s about having one of the great days of your life!

If you’re travelling from overseas for Eroica Britannia, you can do both events in a one week trip!

Your bike; should be (or be a replica of) a bike from 1987 or older. This means steel, downtube shifters and non-index gears…it’s the real thing! If you don’t own a classic bike, no problem, we’ll be working in partnership with some very high quality vintage hire people!
