It’s not if you ride the John O’Groats to Land’s End, it’s when.
A lot of our riders in the last 2 years have been keen cyclists and regularly out with their local clubs or with groups of friends. Having ridden lots of sportives, maybe a criterium here or there and been glued to the Tour in July they are looking for something more. Even if 100 miles feels within range for a day, doing that 9 times back to back with 700 others is an entirely different proposition and for many the iconic ‘end to end’ ride is a must do.
What makes Deloitte RAB unique is the quality of the event itself. It’s designed by cyclists for cyclists and we know what makes it work. Whether it be ensuring your bike stays in top running order with on-road and base-camp mechanics, well balanced nutrition during the day and in the evening, or experienced physiotherapists taking care of sore knees, necks or backs we look after it all.
The Route Director, Andy Cook is the current President of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Commission for Cycling for All and has also held senior positions at both British Cycling and the Cyclists Touring Club (CTC). Add into this that he is a regular contributor in Cycling Plus and you begin to understand that this is a man that takes his cycling seriously.
He leads our route planning to ensure we take in some of the best that the country has to offer. He looks after our training and gives you exclusive plans you can upload directly to MapMyTracks.com and he is also there on the ride to give advice, guidance and generally to make sure you have a fantastic time.
If you aren’t convinced then check out some of the blogs from past riders. It truly is one of the classic rides of the world, and there is no better way to experience it than on Deloitte Ride Across Britain.
