Fundraise for us with a free place on the Great British Cycling Festival Challenge 100

Starting in Norfolk, this brand new 100 mile sportive being held as part of the Great British Cycling Festival, and we've got a chance for you to ride for free.

The Great British Cycling Festival is heading to Norfolk in June 2019. Not only will Norwich be hosting the 2019 National Road Championships, but you'll have the chance to ride in the shadows of those elite riders going for the British title with this truly beautiful and exciting 100-mile sportive.

For the first time in the championships’ history, the men’s and women’s races will be on the road simultaneously before both finishing in Norwich city centre.

This is a chance to challenge yourself on the exact same route, and benefit from the support of the crowds who will gather to see the country’s best riders go head-to-head to claim the national champions’ jerseys. With live TV coverage you may even see yourself on TV.

This event was formerly a closed road event, but is now an open road event with a closed road start and finish. The price of entry has therefore been reduced from £68 to £35. Find out more on the Great British Cycling Festival website.

If you have already entered at the initial price you should have already been contacted concerning a refund of the difference. Event organisers have also confirmed that instead of a refund you could transfer your entry to the closed road Tour of Cambridge 100 Sportive taking place on the 2 June. Please contact us for more information or if you have any questions.

The date for your diary is Sunday 30 June 2019. Entries are limited and are expected to go fast - so secure your place now.

Ride for free

We've secured a limited number of charity places, so you can not only ride for free but fundraise to support Cycling UK, the national cycling charity.
