Final Round of the Challenge 5 of 5
This the event without a hill in sight! We are returning to one of our favourite cafes for this the final event of the series. They will have a menu on offer for hungry riders afterwards but we may ask that you place your orders when you register to help avoid delays.
The 2017 Series prize giving will take place afterwards.
Now in its 5th year The Allerdale Bike Challenge is a series of 5 events in and around West Cumbria. The 'challenge' is to score as many points as possible, in a limited time, by using a map to visit checkpoints that are placed around the small country lanes of Allerdale. As the routes will all be on tarmac, and will avoid the big climbs of the Lake District, they can be undertaken on any road, hybrid or mountain bike. The events are aimed at riders of all abilities and can be ridden solo, in pairs or small family groups. As there is a time limit, and no set route, the challenge is as easy or tough as you want it to be, making it equally suitable for hardened cyclists or 'come-and-try-it ' riders. There will be prizes for the series and it will be your best 3 scores that count.
There is a discount if entering all five events in advance online. Enter all five and get one free!
The rules are simple:
You must have a road worthy bike and wear a cycle helmet.
There will be twenty five checkpoints all having equal value.
Checkpoints will be placed on road signs and footpath finger posts.
You will have a maximum of two hours to visit as many checkpoints as possible.
Only roads and cycleways can be used. Bridleways and footpaths are out of bounds.
There will be penalty points if you are late back!
You must report to the finish at the end even if you retire.
Please note that juniors must be accompanied by an adult as part of a generation team.
