In the heartland of the Royal Air Force, RAF College Cranwell provides the imposing start and finish line for fantastic day of cycling through the quiet lanes and quaint villages of Lincolnshire. JET Ride 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 rolling countryside is ideal for those that are new to cycling, as well as providing a tough but enjoyable distance to more seasoned cyclists. To finish the day, there will be a flypast by the famous Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (weather permitting).
