April – North Lincs Sportive

The Paul Kirk Memorial North Lincs CycloSportive
Sunday  14th April, 2019

The Paul Kirk North Lincs CycloSportive, now in its ninth 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 . For the 100 mile route the choice to follow this doesn’t need to be made until you get to the split point of the ride at 45 miles in, see how you feel on the day.
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 by our friends at the Coffee Stop, 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!

Entries are now open  for 2019 click on the button


Entries will be available on the day (subject to maximum entries limit) price is £25, please bring the correct cash value. Registration is open from 7am to 9:30am and you must have set off by 10am. All routes must be completed by 5pm.

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 (http://www.ambucopter.org.uk/) 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 (www.SickChildrensTrust.org) 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.

    Hi there,

    I wasn’t actually on the sportive but I ended up on the 100 mile route section into the wolds. There was a guy taking photographs half way up Walesby Hill and he got a couple of me, I was just wondering if anyone know who he was or where the photos could be found?

    1. David Hinch

      Try TWG photography.

    I did the Festive Fifty in December 2015, a great ride, excellent feed stations and really helpful marshals. Well organised. The other thing that sticks in my mind, was the stinking, disgusting and squalid gents toilets at Brigg FC. Anybody that has worn bib tights will understand the problems involved. We couldn’t use the changing rooms for what reason? Are cyclists less responsible, less clean than footballers? I wouldn’t go back there again to watch a football match let alone attend a charity event. Those facilities were foul and not fit for anyone.

    1. David Hinch

      Hi Max. The Festive Fifty wasnt a Lincsquad Sportive. We only organise the Paul Kirk North Lincs Memorial Sportive in April but as we do use the venue for this event your comments are noted and will be passed on.

  9. Pete Hobson
