Saturday 6th April to Sunday 14th April 2019
What is the Road Runner Challenge?
The idea originated from two of our popular and highly successful fundraising challenges, John O’Groats to Land’s End (JOGLE) and the NC500. With both of these tours there’s a need to ride to the start point in Scotland and back home post event, hence the Road Runner Challenge was devised which is a full tour of the UK. John o Groats to Lands’ End is one for the bucket list and for those not familiar with the NC500, this is a 500 mile circular tour of Scotland on some of the best biking roads the UK has to offer. On this challenge you will ride all A and B roads and not only incorporating the JOGLE and the NC500, but some our National Parks and the best scenery our country offers us.
Welcome to our
‘Road Runner Challenge’
The event will start at our pre tour function on Saturday 6th April 2019 at the Hilton Hotel, East Midlands Airport, DE74 2YW.
This is a function for all of our tours and challenges where you pre tour briefing will take place prior to setting off the next morning, this is also a chance to meet the other riders and pillions taking on this challenge . The following morning greeted with blue sky and sunshine we will be waved off by the other guest of the pre tour function from the night before, this will be day one of the challenge and hopefully 8 days later we will all be sat having a beer having completed our goal?
Each daily route will allow you to experience some of the best roads and scenery the UK has to offer.
The mileage for this challenge is listed below, there is an option on day 5 to cut out some of the mileage, but this would also cut out some of the NC 500.
All the mileages were achievable in 2018 with time management without excessive speed so you can enjoy the ride and the countryside.
