In the heartland of the Royal Air Force, RAF College Cranwell provides the imposing start and finish line for a fantastic day of cycling through the lanes and villages of Lincolnshire. JETRIDE aims to challenge people to ride a demanding distance whilst raising funds to help us support more young people to be the best they can be.
The gentle countryside is ideal for those new to cycling, as well as providing a tough but enjoyable distance to more
seasoned cyclists. There are tasty foodstops en route and, to finish the day, there will be a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (weather permitting).
