Tour Of The Wolds
Tour Of The Wolds 2018
In 2017 the Tour of the Wolds Cycle Race, part of the HSBC UK British Cycling Spring Cup Series, was held for the first time and brought thousands of people to the streets of Louth. However, whilst great support was given by Magna Vitae and East Lindsay District Council, these events can only survive with private sector sponsorship and this proved extremely difficult to get agreement upon.
The Tour of the Wolds hasn’t been listed in the British Cycling Spring Cup series this coming year, therefore the races will not take place, but the Sportive will still take place as planned.
British Cycling remains keen on the Wolds as a venue and we’ll be working with British Cycling to try and secure the event for 2019. It’s true to say cost have increased and hosting the event will depend on the sponsorship that can be raised, but this is something we’ll be looking to discuss with potential funding partners over the coming months.
The Lincoln Grand Prix is unaffected by this decision and will take place on 13th May 2018.
