***UPDATE*** COVID 19 Important information
Clearly the event cannot go ahead on 5th April as planned. Our committee are currently considering how to handle the practicalities going forward. We aim to advise everyone as soon as possible. Look after yourself and I will stay in touch with all registered riders. Thank you for your understanding.

This popular early season event challenges you to cycle the 50 mile course and to eat what is a generous buffet lunch in either 4 or 5 hours. It is not a race. If you would like a more sociable pace, there is also a shorter 50km route. Start/finish is Farndon Sports and Social club, Sibbersfield Lane, Farndon, Chester CH3 6NX.
We welcome cyclists of all ages and abilities. You do not have to be a member of Cycling UK although we encourage you to join our national organisation www.cyclinguk.org. Members enjoy a cheaper entry charge. The route is all on road but not closed ones! Do take the time to enjoy this tour of our wonderful Cheshire and Welsh border lanes.
The entry fee is £15.00 (or £14.00 for Cycling UK members). Under 18’s (members) ride for reduced charge of £7.00 when accompanied by a full paying adult. Parents or carers should still register them and sign the consent.
For that you get:
- drinks at start/finish
- buffet style lunch midway
- electronic timing
- plenty of free car parking at HQ
- route sheet in paper form or for GPS devices
- support vehicle for emergencies
- event is registered for Cycling UK Challenge Ride series
The course follows a figure of 8, looping out to Kinnerton in one direction and Overton in the other. Entries cannot be refunded or transfered and must be received before 15th March after which the charge increases to £18 for everyone and only accepted if there is space. Our limit is 300 riders. Early entry is a must to guarantee your place.
If you are riding the 50 mile course do tell us how fast you plan to complete and if you want to be grouped with team mates. You will be allocated a time slot to start from 9.45am to 10.45am. Faster 4 hour riders and those following the shorter 50km circuit will leave last.
Please note that when you register you will receive an email confirming your paid entry, but the route details and joining instructions will not be sent to you until approximately 7 days before the event. I will also advise you then about any special dietary needs.
