Excited by cycling at the Olympics

Excited by cycling at the Olympics ?

Well this aims to be even better than the Olympics !

With over 50 cyclists now signed up, we can advise that we are still recruiting cyclists. Why not consider taking part in one of the legs, some of the legs  or all of the legs. The arrangements we had made with our support company allow for us to split the trip up into multiple legs.

In addition to folks taking part in the entire cycle, it had become popular for team members to sign up for the first five days from Glasgow to Portsmouth or another popular choice had been for folks to meet up in either Portsmouth, St Malo or Mont de Marsan making cycle to Lisbon

For more information on the cycle including costs, please get in touch via our contact page
