Embrace your inner Bradley Wiggins and eat more than you would imagine possible! brand new challenge which takes you from England all the way to sunny Barcelona. New this year Barcelona promises to be our toughest adventure yet. Are you up for the challenge?

With socials throughout the year and weekly training rides you’ll be sure to leave having already met some great people and feeling completely prepared to take on the challenge. An average day on the ride would involve a hearty breakfast at 8.30am and on the bikes by 9.30. A few hours later its lunchtime (usually spent in a park or a nice pub garden – weather dependant!) before cycling on to the campsite where you’ll find dinner ready and your tents set up. Riding in different ability groups of 10-12 people you can choose whether to push yourself to go faster or to take it easy and enjoy the scenery day by day. The support vans will transport your luggage each day, set up your tents, cook all your food and will be on call for any mechanical issues.

Once in Barcelona it’s up to you whether to do some sightseeing or just rest your legs in a café eating some well-earned pastries!

You must be a RAG member to sign up to this event. Please go to http://www.leedsuniversityunion.org.uk/groups/rag/ to get your membership and register for the Tour to France. Remember that there are limited places available for this once in a lifetime challenge!
