Introducing a new event for 2018 - the “Velo 500” challenge rides.
Here's another great reason to ride with Velo Runner as we are organising 4 great summer outings totalling 500k. Complete them all and receive a limited edition VR 500 top, cap and goodie bag - open to all club members free of charge. If you're not yet a member then sign up soon and don’t miss out.
The first ride commences with the classic Llangollen Run 160 kilometres.
This is a great club ride for all abilities - nice and flat and a great way to stretch the legs. Cafe stop half way in Llangollen, beers at the Wayfarer on return to Stone.

The second ride introduces some hills, 100 kilometres into the Peak District, taking in classic climbs such as Ipstones, Blackshaw Moor, Gunhill. A cafe stop at Tittersworth Reservoir. This is a great ride to test climbing legs after the Minorca training camps.
