Hell of The North Challenge Ride - Harrogate - 7th April 2019
Time: Meet at 8:15am for a 8:30am departure
Where: Cold Bath Brewing, Harrogate, HG1 5JW
Sigma Sports ‘Hell of the North’
Join us for a slightly different Challenge Ride this April.
Heading up North into the beautiful town of Harrogate, this month’s ride celebrates one of the toughest races in the Monument Series - the Tour of Flanders.
On Sunday, 7th April we will be setting off from Cold Bath Brewery with a group of customers into the stunning hills of North Yorkshire for a truly memorable ride.
Fuelled by our nutrition partner OTE and led by our experienced ride captains, the route will take in some of the most iconic roads and climbs. Please note that all route details will be shared closer to the time.
After completing the ride, all groups will return to our partners Cold Bath Brewery for refreshments and the chance to watch the Tour of Flanders on a big screen. There will be plenty of food and drinks available to purchase.
There will be three different groups covering different routes. These will vary in speed and difficulty to cater for all fitness abilities.
Group 1 will set off first, followed by Group 2 and finally Group 3. This means that should you find yourself in a group that is too fast for your taste you can always sit up and wait for the next group on the road to come along. Group 3 will operate a no-drop policy.
Group 1 will be aiming to average around 19/20mph (31kph). 19mph is an average speed so there will be times when the speed is actually higher than this so you will need a decent level of fitness and the ability to ride in a group is essential!
Group 2 will aim to average between 17/18mph (29kph). Again this is an average speed so speeds will be in excess of 18mph in places. You will need to have had good group riding experience again for this group and will need a good level of fitness to complete the distance.
Group 3 will be aiming to average around 15/16mph (26kph). You will still need to have experience of group riding and sitting on another rider’s wheel but this ride will endeavour not to drop anyone, within reason.
Want to try the latest bike either on one of our rides or over a weekend? We have a fleet of demo bikes available, from some of cycling's biggest brands. To inquire about hiring a bike and to learn more about our demo fleet please contact our sales team.
