So the calendar clicks forward one day and suddenly we’re in Olympic year. Deloitte Ride Across Britain also comes several clicks closer. My best man and I have high tailed it to Club La Santa in Lanzarote for an Andy Cook bike week. What a great way to get in the proper training groove for 960 miles of Land’s End to John O’Groats breathless sightseeing. Read More…
What is a Sportive, or to give it the full-title, a CycloSportive? Technically, a mass participation, non-competitive [as if!] cycle event, sportives make brilliant training for the Deloitte RAB.
In this section we will tell you which are the best ones, which we will be riding, and how we get on.
I felt a strange sense of despair yesterday as I set off for a 31 mile ride to my mother in law in Salisbury. Not only was the temperature 2 degrees, the legs like clay, disconcerting ice aplenty, but it was the good old British driver that caused my dour state. From the perspective of my bike, it seems drivers are always in an almighty hurry, unable to wait more than 3 seconds before taking ridiculous risks to over-take and save themselves an essential minute or two which they’ll spend talking about how bad X Factor has become. God, am I sounding like the Daily Mail?
We’re very pleased to announce that our new web-site goes live today!
As a fresh face to Deloitte RAB 2012, we’re really excited and very happy with the ‘new look’ website. We think it’s pretty simple to use, with everything you need to know in one place. We love photos and think they are the best tool to tell the story. Be it training, base camps or the stunning views on the route, there’s load of photos to look through from the last two epic rides. Also, if you need a decision-maker, take a moment to read through some blogs written by our previous budding riders so you can really get a taste of what the event is all about.
We hope that we have covered everything, but if you have ANY questions at all, just give us a call at HQ. There’s always a friendly voice at the end of the phone keen to answer any queries and get you excited about this exciting and remarkable challenge.
More Is In You.
