These are the challenges to which all cyclists aspire, riding epic endurance challenges conquering the most famous climbs in Europe, and cycling on iconic roads
Launching in January 2015 by the team who founded Just Pedal. THE RAID is about completing some of the most iconic road cycling challenges in the world. This is about pushing you to another level of cycling, advancing your limits and getting the most out of your weekend ride. This year THE RAID team will bring you some of the most iconic tours including the legendary Mont Ventoux, Alpe D’Huez and Passo dello Stelvio.
Rob Hawkins, Founder, comments “THE RAID is about offering cyclists the chance to take on the most iconic challenges in cycling whilst combining them with first class service, top accommodation and the best support. Our trips, suited to a variety of abilities, will include some of the most famous roads and climbs in Europe.”
THE RAID series will begin in June 2015 with our inaugural RAID FORTY-EIGHT endurance event where we will be supporting a small group of riders on the 555 mile, 48 hour journey from London to Paris and back. Road cyclists who are interested in taking part can apply to ride alongside the record breaking team and ride with them to see if they too can cycle 555 miles in under 48 hours. This event will be followed up with THE RAID VENTOUX. Giving you the chance to ride the ‘Alp of Provence’ once, twice or three times in a day gaining entry to the exclusive ‘Cingle de Ventoux’ cycling club. A true cycling classic fully supported by THE RAID team. Finally, THE RAID STELVIO, another iconic location, offering a chance to ride 2 famous passes of the Stelvio and climb the Gavia just to end the day!
With these events, and other classic cycling locations on the agenda, THE RAID gives every rider the chance to make their cycling dreams a reality”
Trips start from £650 and include the best possible service with cyclists supported at each stage of the experience. Iconic destinations coupled with first-class support make these cycling events like no other.
