The Mighty Corinthian

The Mighty Corinthian


The Mighty Corinthian now joins our other retro events, À L’ancienne and Le Loafeur as part of the weekend-long Velo Retro. So on Sunday, you can rest your legs, listen to music and relax in the Gin Tent and fill your tanks from our great street food providers!

The Mighty Corinthian is a replica one day classic from back in the day. Big distances, lots of climbing, spectacular locations – all ridden on vintage steel bicycles in period kit! The only difference is that you’ll receive the famous Sportive Lakes support and you’ll be really well fed! So, fish out the Sean Kelly outfit, polish up the old Raleigh and let’s go!

The Mighty Corinthian showcases the finest of the Lake District landscapes – coastal plains, wild moors, arable farm land, wonderful villages, the odd mountain pass and just a few lakes! Due to the length of the event, we’ve missed some of the steepest climbs to give you the best chance of success. This isn’t about going fast; it’s about having a huge experience with like-minded people, it’s about having one of the great days of your life!

What’s it like to ride? Read Mike Stead’s Road CC article here.

Your bike; should be (or be a replica of) a bike from 1987 or older. This means steel, downtube shifters and non-index gears…it’s the real thing! If you don’t own a classic bike, no problem, we’ll be working in partnership with some very high quality vintage hire people!
