Viking Challenge 2012

A reminder from the organisers of this local charity ride. We'll be there as usual. See you on it or in the pub after!

Only three weeks to go

Just three weeks until the day of The Viking Challenge. If you've not signed up yet you can do so on our new website. You can do it all online and pay by Paypal. You can also buy your Viking Challenge t-shirt on the site.

Don't forget, the reason we organise this event is to raise money for charity. This year, our partner charity is Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.  You can see a video about the amazing work that they do on our website. Please consider raising sponsorship for your ride. If you raise more than £50 you'll get a free Viking Challenge t-shirt  and there are prizes for those who raise the most money. Any amount you raise will make a real difference to both the charity and Redmile School, home of the Viking Challenge. You can raise sponsorship through Just Giving, choosing Hearing Dogs for Deaf People as the charity you are fundraising for. Remember to email all your friends and post on facebook to let everyone know what you're doing.

If you've not seen it yet, take a look at our facebook page.  It's a really quick and easy way to get updates about the event and to chat with us and other riders. You can find it here.

Looking forward to seeing you on the day

Viking Challenge

BellyFrom September 15th -26th Paul and Iain (A.K.A. Belly and The Doc) are going to be cycling across the entire length of Spain from north to south.

You will be able to keep up with their progress via this blog: which will feature live mapping of where they've got to.

It's not all about long days in the saddle working up a thirst for the long evenings in the bar though! They will also be raising money for charity. You can donate to help them for three great causes (The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Cancer Research UK and Alzheimer’s Research UK) at


Tonya's Challenge

The annual charity ride from Southwell, Nottinghamshire is on Sunday 8th May. There are 4 trails to choose from ranging from a gentle family friendly 5 mile route that is a mixture of very quiet minor country lanes and bridleways to 'The Trent Valley Killer' a gruelling 37 miles boasting over 70% off road.

TSW are on board as the major sponsors this year. They will be there on the day for spares, repairs, drooling over new bikes etc.

Sign up online for a fun ride whatever your level:
