What to expect

A typical day on tour

Each day has a theme. We rise early and set off after breakfast. Generous water points en route. Post-ride drinks & snacks at the finish line. The afternoons are your to relax and explore, mingle with fellow riders, learn from others and sharpen your skills. Dinner will be a sit down affair. You deserve a good night's sleep - there will be no camping. Shared or upgraded accommodation available.

 Captains

We ride in groups, according to ability, under the watchful eyes and helping hands of our ride captains. These are ex pro's, young guns, or current competitive cyclists. They are here to help and share their experience.

MAMILS

We are a group of middle aged men in lycra. We value our time and create rides that we want to do ourselves. Which is why we ride alongside you. Join us for an adventure and part as a friend.

 Strava

This is not a race. It is a multi-day cyclo-sportive. And we go out hard. Effort is compulsory but timing is optional. Fines meetings will be held and banter is encouraged. Spot prizes up for grabs.
