3 Counties Challenge 2014

Written by Administrator. Posted in Events

Riders in the 3CCIn 2014 the Tour de France will start in Yorkshire next year on the same weekend that we would normally have run our 3 Counties Challenge cycling fund-raising event.

To spare Messrs Wiggins and Froome the agonising decision of which event to participate in we have decided to move the date of the 3CC to 17th August 2014.  Full details of the venue, routes and regulations are available on the web site and on-line registration will open soon.  We will offer the two outstanding routes of 60 and 112 miles as in previous years, and add another feed station on the longer route. 


In recent years the event has clashed with other sportives and we hope that by moving it to August we may avoid some of these problems.  As club members often take their vacations when schools are not on holiday we may also find that more volunteers will be available to help with the event.
