Take on the ultimate UK cycle challenge whilst riding alongside some of the world’s best
Although we focus on providing an event that is accessible to all, this doesn’t mean it isn’t suitable for elite riders. We have had multiple Olympic champions from cycling as well as other disciplines taking on the ride and coming back exhausted and elated. Make no mistake, this is as tough a challenge for an elite cyclist as you choose to make it.
We ensure the route is safe and fast, we ensure the signage is clear for you to follow, we give you turn by turn gpx files, we also make sure you have everything you need from sports nutrition to full access to all tools required to fix bikes and keep your pride and joy running faultlessly.
For some the challenge has been enough to set a good time from end to end of the UK, for others they use it as an exceptional base fitness camp for events later in the year such as an Ironman. If you are in doubt about the value of doing the ride from a training perspective, then you should ask the chief coach of the ParalympicsGB cycling team.
After multiple Olympic medalist Jody Cundy completed the ride in 2010, his power output and strength were so far improved that he ordered the whole team to complete the event the following year.
