Challenge Rides – As the name suggests these are specific one-day events that are a little more demanding than the average club run. They are often over a longer distance and/or difficult terrain, but usually with spectacular scenery. Examples include:


The Shropshire Challenge – A testing ride in the Shropshire hills around the historic town of Ludlow.


The Wild Wales Challenge – An arduous 70-80 mile route centred on the north Wales town of Bala.

The Hell of the North Cotswolds – This unique ride encompasses a large amount of off road riding. Ideally suited to mountain bike riding .


Audax Events – These are set distance events for the serious cyclo tourist or "Randonneur". Over specified distances of 100,200,300,400 or 600 km. They require a formal touring bike with saddle bag/panniers and lights if necessary. These events are entered in advance and you are issued with a brevet card to be stamped at controls along the route.


Specialist Events – Include place to place rides and "grimpeur " events (mountainous rides). Many are "classic" events such as the Paris –Brest- Paris.
