After all the challenges that Covid has thrown at us this year it's time for a more interesting challenge, one you'll actually want to do. This involves your favourite pastime, riding your bike, and you get the whole of December to complete it. You can also join the discussion on the club Facebook Page.
This is a virtual challenge to suit all abilities. The aim is to encourage you all to ride more frequently throughout December and challenge your self to ride the equivalent of Lands End to John O'Groats a whopping 874 miles, or as much of it as you think will provide you with your own personal challenge. There will be some spot prizes, entirely at the committee's discretion. As it's a virtual challenge you can ride on any cycle of your choice and even turbo miles count.
So will you be up to the challenge, will anyone conquer the full distance of 874 miles which is only just over 28 miles per day, every day!
Here's the route, although as it's a virtual challenge you can set your own target

4th Cat - 125 miles would get you to Exeter
200 miles Bristol
