Cycling Challenges / Long Distance Rides (Randonees) 2014

Our Cycling Challenges holidays are a series of "Raids", such as the Raid Corsica, Raid Pyrenean, Raid Alpine, and Raid Dolomite.

On most Randonnees, you are provided with a "carnet" which must be stamped at pre-determined points to prove you have completed the Raid. These are then returned by us to the organisers after which you will receive a medal for your efforts.

A van will carry your luggage each day from overnight stop to overnight stop, and where possible act as a back up for serious mechanical breakdowns.

Our programme of 2014 cycling challenges is as follows:

Tenerife Cycling Lunar Tour (Various dates from January to May 2014)
Enjoy a week of cycling in Tenerife riding many of the roads used by top cycling professionals, such as Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Team Sky, to perfect their cycling form in time for major cycling races.
