Who is the Training Ride for?
This event is open to anyone and everyone. Whether you are looking to see if Deloitte Ride Across Britain is the right challenge for you, you have already signed up to join us in 2019 or have previously taken on the challenge and would like to remind yourself of what it’s like, the Ride is designed to bring together all cyclists from the experienced to the novice. If you are new to this epic challenge, it is a fantastic way to see first hand what the journey will be like in September as well as getting some top tips from our experienced crew, chaperones and previous riders.
What Happens on the Day?
We will kick off the day with a session designed to give you some real insights in to what it’s really like to ride Deloitte Ride Across Britain. Starting with a brief introduction from our CEO (a Deloitte RAB alumni himself!) there will be a brief explanation of the day’s agenda. There will then be a talk from our Route Director who will share his top tips for success with you, a chance to hear from a Sports Nutritionist who will talk through what you need to know about keeping fit for a multi day ride, an opportunity to hear about the essential kit you never knew you needed and more. Before you set off on the ride, we will also have a brief Q&A session designed for you to ask any questions you may have before you set off.
On the Ride
The route has been chosen specifically to mimic the road surfaces which you will ride on when tackling the official Deloitte Ride Across Britain later in the year. A great opportunity to practice cycling together, we will divide people up dependent on their riding speeds, and we would advise you stick with your allocated group. Our expert chaperones will be on hand to ride alongside you, helping you with any problems that you may have and to share their own experiences of this incredible ride. For all your mechanical and medical support out on the roads, our experts will be on hand to help you through. Make sure you stop at our halfway pit stop to chat to the crew, before fuelling up and getting ready to push through to the finish line.
Mix and Mingle
Once you have returned back to the start and tucked in to some hot food, which will be waiting for you on arrival, you can carry on chatting to the chaperones and crew members. This is also the perfect time to get to know your fellow riders and see who will ride alongside you on this challenge in September. Take your time to relax and walk around the information stalls which are specifically set up to help you find the right person to talk to. From medics and mechanics to nutrition experts and the official Deloitte Team, we will ensure you leave the day with no questions unanswered. We will even have a kitbag on hand so you can see exactly what you should take with you on this challenge!
