Your Challenge. Your Charity. Your Day. You Decide…

Tilnar Cycling Challenge

The website for cyclists of all ages and abilities. We aim to be the one stop resource for charity, fun and family ride listings. We also offer a place for cyclists to publish blogs about  your cycling experiences, touring stories and to showcase your recommended cycle friendly places to stay & activities.
Have you ever wanted to have one big cycle challenge each year? Whether your aim is to ride 2 or 200 miles, 15 mins or the total 15 hours. Whether on roads, tracks or even on a static bike. Whether you are an elite cyclist, a weekend warrior or just an occasional rider, this is the challenge for you. How many miles can you ride in up to 15 hours between 6 am and 9pm? You pick your own route, you can take part anywhere in the world and you decide how far you ride… Participating is easy. You can plan your own route or join an event in your local area. You can cycle on your own or as part of a group. No expensive travel arrangements to start points 100s of miles away. You can start from your own front door! It is your day and you decide how you want to take part. You can either go out for a solo ride, or plot a more organised route with friends and family around a base, or even join a more formal organised event. The Tilnar Cycle Challenge wants to inspire the next generation so children under 18, providing they are accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian, will be able to enter so why not make it a family fun day out, have fun, be active and also support charity!
The Tilnar Cycle Challenge is an annual cycling endurance event inspiring you to ride as many miles as possible in up to 15 hours (6am - 9pm). Participants can choose to start and finish anytime within the time limits and they choose their own route. For some it will be a chance to compare their cycling endurance on their own local roads to all other participants on one day each year. Others will regard it more as a social day with a leisurely start time. An opportunity to have an enjoyable cycle at their own pace, whilst raising funds for their chosen charity. It is your challenge so you decide! You record your efforts on your cycle computer, cycling app or manually if you’re an occasional cyclist. Once you have completed the challenge, enter your results on our website, and compare your efforts against all others in a wide range of categories. The distances ridden by our challengers in 2015 ranged from 2 to 216 miles and everyone pledged to cycle further next time! Set the date, and remember TILNAR - This Is Life Not A Rehearsal so step up to the challenge and enter today. Get Inspired!
