It’s the time of year when advice on how to better yourself in some way pervades our lives via advertising and social media ad nauseam; be it drastic diets, stringent exercise regimes or learning to meditate, ’tis the season of fads that will be forgotten by February. So, instead of making a negative pledge in the form of restrictive lifestyle changes why not make a resolution that is sure to stand the test of time and commit to a cycling challenge for 2019?
Top Cycling Challenges for 2019
Whether you’re a total rookie or a hardened roadie a cycling challenge is a great way to motivate yourself to get out there and clock up the kms whilst seeing the world in 2019. Let’s take a look at some of the best cycling adventures to sign up to to keep you on two wheels in 2019!
For The Intrepid Adventurer
A raid or trans cycling tour is the perfect challenge for those with a taste for adventure. An epic point-to-point journey crossing big mountain ranges incorporating some iconic climbs and tough terrain is sure to quench anyone’s thirst for adventure. The feeling after completing a two-wheeled journey that traverses hundreds of kilometres is like no other!
For The Newcomer
No need to be a seasoned rider to set yourself a cycling challenge this year. The key is to start small and not over-face yourself. Our leisure cycling tours are the perfect way to introduce yourself to cycling holidays and discover how much more you can see via bike! With rides to suit your ability and emphasis on exploring the area and experiencing the culture a leisure tour is a great place to start.
Alternatively, setting a distance goal is also a good place to begin to introduce more cycling to your schedule, look at where you are and set a realistic goal and you never know – you might surprise yourself!
For The Rider Who’s Seen It All
If you’re a veteran of cycling holidays then you’ve probably already ‘been there and done that’ when it comes to the Alps, Pyrenees or Dolomites. New experiences and challenges are the perfect way to motivate yourself to train during those winter months and a Hidden Gem cycling tour is the perfect way to explore somewhere new, whether it’s a new mountain range or a whole new country.
For The Competitive Rider
If you have a competitive streak then you’re going to need a competitive event to motivate you! Signing up to a Gran Fondo or sportive is the perfect way to make sure you stick to your training plan and get out of the door on those days when you might not be feeling like it. If you want to take the stress out of organising and travelling then let us do the hard work so all you have to do is prepare and turn up to ride!
