Channel Cycle Challenge

I am booked for the London 100 miler on May 29th but then covid got me so I don’t know if I will be fit enough. I set it as a fitness goal as soon as I could book but lost the fabulous March weather for training.

In the Channel Cycle Challenge you can shorten your effort on the day to 80 or 50 or even 30 miles depending on fitness on the day. So book with confidence that you can still take part.

We have refined the route to make this possible. So book now without hesitation. Covid sapped my energy but it is coming back quickly thank goodness.

Book now for Sunday 3rd July. It’s a flat route which should make 100 miles a little easier.
