What other challengers have said:
“Being new to cycling, this was my very first cycle challenge. It was tough but I really enjoyed it and the support given by the riders and Challenge Central was amazing.”
Mike, Cambridge Cycle challenger
Cycling the distance is no easy task but providing you are currently active, this challenge is certainly achievable for an average level of fitness.
No one will be left behind. There will always be a Challenge Central leader at the front and back of the group to show the way. They will ensure that the group regularly re-groups and that no one is left behind.
You can, however Challenge Central do recommend using road or at least hybrid bikes. Mountain bikes are heavy and can make the challenge tougher than it needs to be. If you are going to use a mountain bike, they suggest using a set of slick tyres to help decrease friction and increase speed.
Please note (other than lunch buffet) you are responsible for your own food for this challenge. You will need a steady supply of energy whilst you are cycling so keeping fast releasing sources of energy such as bananas, energy bars, gels, sweets and nuts with you on the bike is essential.
Challenge Central carry large canisters of water on the support vehicle (tap water in large containers) so it is not essential that you bring lots of bottles of water/drinks with you.
If you have any special dietary requirements, please make Challenge Central aware when making your booking.
Once back at Letchworth Tennis Club there will be the option to join the team for a beverage at the club before everyone must make their own way home.
