This Summer we are riding into the future with Tour de France to offer you an exciting cycling challenge.
It’s adaptable for all ages and abilities, just choose which parts of the challenge work for you and then get out and get cycling!
You have the whole month to complete your challenge so be ambitious and send us pictures of how you are getting on.
Through the month we will be covering the following points across our social media channels so don’t forget to like, follow and share with your friends. We will send your Tour De France themed medal a month from your sign up date so you have plenty of time to complete the challenge.
Make this challenge your own. Adapt it to your own surroundings and ability. We don’t ask for proof, your medals will be posted automatically.
