Fantastic Turnout for The Lincoln Cycle Grand Prix
Yesterday saw a fantastic turnout on Lincoln City's streets for the 62nd Lincoln Cycle Grand Prix - sponsored by Chestnut Homes. The historic race sees cyclists climb the cobbles of Michaelgate before entering Castle Square.
Thousands of supporters lined the route which took riders out to Burton Village. The sun shone down as the women riders completed 63 miles, followed by the men who took on 103.
Alice Barnes won the women's event cycling for team Drops, whilst Ian Bibby took home the trophy for JLT Condor in the men's race.
This is the first time Chestnut Homes sponsored the event with Managing Director David Newton presenting the winners with their prizes on the podium.
David said: "We are really pleased to be involved with the event this year. It is fantastic for the city to host such a big event and it really draws in the crowds. The day was organised brilliantly."
