A weekend-long cycling festival will return with a host of sporting events in Lincoln after two event organisers joined for a unified programme.

From 12th to 14th May in 2017, there will be a programme of events, expected to attract cyclists from across the country to take part in the festival. Previously, 2015 events were scaled down when former partners ITP Events and Lincoln Grand Prix organisers both claimed rights to one of the sportive races.

ITP Events and Lincoln Grand Prix have now joined forces and are offering a bumper programme of races to cyclists. The Lincoln Criterium will take place on 12th May, the Lincoln GP Sportive and the Uphill Dash on 13th May and the Lincoln Men’s and Women’s Lincoln Grand Prix on 14th May.

Numbers are limited to 2000 participants for the Sportive to ensure a high quality and safe experience for the cyclists. Entries for this will open on 1st October.

The Lincoln Grand Prix 2017, is said to be bigger and better than ever and will not disappoint. This will protect the future of Britain’s oldest remaining classic one-day cycle race and a proportion of the Sportive entry fee will contribute toward the Grand Prix. Organisers are hoping to develop the festival into the UK’s biggest weekend of cycling.
