Brian Robinson Challenge Ride

Dear All

I have been asked to ciculate this information.

Brian Robinson Challenge Ride 2012. Sunday 29th April 2012

Entries are now open for one of the season’s favourite ‘warm up’ sportives. Before taking on the rigours of others why not test yourself on this 75 mile roller coaster?

Entries Close: Wednesday 4th April 2012 at 12:00

The event uses the same roads and climbs which Britain’s first Tour De France stage winner trained on . Brian Robinson has also attended the event each year to the delight of many cycling fans.

Based around Huddersfield access by road and rail is easy and this event has traditionally featured a closed road mass start thanks to the support of the local Police, highways and Metro.

Reasonably priced and with excellent facilities it has drawn praise from riders and cycling administrators alike. £25 Entry fee

This event is not for profit and entries have supported many worthy causes over the years, including Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which sadly has helped many cyclists in distress

Safe riding
