The Paul Kirk Memorial North Lincs CycloSportive
Sunday  19th April, 2020

The Paul Kirk North Lincs CycloSportive, now in its tenth year is always a sell out so be sure to grab your place quick! Every year, we fight to keep costs down whilst improving the event. By using a more cost effective entry system we have managed to do this at no cost increase for the riders, the price is  £20 plus £1 admin fee.

With three great routes on offer to choose from, 43, 64 and the classic 100 mile. The shorter is ideal for those who may be wanting to try out a sportive but feel the normal distances are just a little to far.
With our ever popular feed stations offering a choice of wraps, tea, coffee, cake and SIS bottle top ups, we keep you going to the end whichever route you choose.
Can you afford to miss out on this fantastic season opener to the Sportive Season with this classic event, with some top notch routes and fantastic support!

The sportive is organised by Lincsquad with all profits being split equally between charities.

After the sad loss of Paul Kirk during the sportive in 2011 from a previously unknown heart complaint, the North Lincs CycloSportive was permanently renamed to ‘The Paul Kirk North Lincs Cyclosportive’. Paul was a keen cyclist and charity fund raiser and this is a fitting tribute in his memory.

This year we will be raising money for two charities. The Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire Air Ambulance Trust and for this year the Sick Childrens Trust

airambulance The Lincolnshire and Nottingham Air Ambulance ( has assisted Lincsquadders and many other cyclists over the years however their work involves potentially everybody from road accidents, recreational activities and critical patient transfers. In February 2013, Lincsquad tragically lost a club mate, committee member & friend, Christian Brown, in a tragic cycling accident. Christian was airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary in a critical condition by the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance but unfortunately he didn’t recover.

The Sick Childrens Trust ( were one of the charities that assisted Lincsquadders Chris and Nicola whilst their son Leo underwent treatment and Lincsquad are proud to help recognise all their work and efforts.


Both charities are extremely worth while and well deserving of our support, on their behalf, Lincsquad thank you for your support.
