New Year, New Cycle Challenge?

Read time - 2 minutes

It’s that time of year again where we start to make bold claims about the year ahead and how we will, of course, eat less, drink less and really make the most of that new gym membership.

If, however, you want to set yourself some targets without having to give up too much of the good stuff a cycling challenge is a good way to go. Whatever your personal target, these trips are sure to provide you with the motivation you need to get onto two wheels in the depths of winter.

An adventure of a lifetime as a reward for all your hard work? Not a bad trade-off and that 11am reward of a piece of cake after your training ride is positively encouraged!
