HOW TO ORGANISE A  CYCLING CHALLENGE

WHERE TO START, FINISH, AND REST

Before figuring out how to get your cyclists from A to B, you must first decide where A and B are.

 

Will you start at home, your company’s office, or at a photogenic landmark nearby? Each has its benefits: a send-off photo outside your office is great promotional material for your business, but one with a famous landmark in the background is much better for showing off to friends and relatives after the ride.

 

A similar consideration needs to be made when finishing – will you finish in a big city square or by arriving at a specially arranged welcome event? The latter is more impressive, but entails a whole extra event to plan (more on this later).

 

Punctuating your route with rest-stops is vital too, whether they be morning espresso breaks or overnight hotel stops. Make sure each stop isn’t too far from the route, that it has a toilet, and ideally that the owners are prepared to receive a large group of cyclists!

 

CREATE A ROUTE

Deciding how to get your group from A to B is perhaps the hardest part of the ride; using Google Maps’ directions tool just doesn’t cut it. You need to research which routes are best for cyclists, taking into account amount of traffic, road surfaces, proximity to cafés and bike shops, as well as deciding where to stay at the end of each day and figuring out the route that takes all of this into account.

SUPPORT

Next comes the decision on whether your riders will be supported or not.  A van to transport bags and bikes (and tired riders) increases convenience but also cost.  Add into the mix a qualified bike mechanic and their tools, first aid kits, food and drink and so on, and this continues to increase.

 

If you decide to get a support vehicle and driver, ensure that both are allowed to be taken abroad.  Some rental companies will charge extra for this, others simply won’t allow it.  Also ensure they have means of navigating themselves – there’s nothing more dispiriting for riders than a lost support vehicle!
