Gentlemen in England, now a-bed shall think themselves accursed they did not ride with us upon St Crispin’s day…
Henry V Shakespeare (Well nearly:)
A stunning cycle ride through the night, past some of London’s most iconic landmarks to collect your personal bottle of unique wine from the new harvest at England’s leading vineyard. After the bright lights of London, we head west under a full moon on the only day you can cycle backwards in time on a route that’s long but designed especially for vintage, retro and fixie bikes. (It’s also great for modern bikes and moderately fit riders!)
The St Crispin’s Day night ride is a magical and heroic adventure in the making.
We start at Midnight on Saturday 26th October 2013. The finish is open until 4.00 pm on Sunday afternoon. So you have up to 17 hours to complete the ride. As long as you can average a bit less than six miles per hour, you’ll be fine.
It’s 100 miles, a long way but because the route is designed for vintage bikes and fixies it’s very do-able for the averagely fit rider. Once you’ve done it you’ll be able to say you’ve joined the elite band of brothers who ridden 100 miles in one day and you’ll have a Century certificate to prove it!
So will you join this crazy bunch of English Ladies and Gentlemen who ride through the night and share the adventure, the wine and the tale with their friends? Or will you forever think yourself accursed?
Entries for the 2013 event open on the 1st August!
