KCC April riding challenges

Due to popular demand we are starting a summer of monthly challenges.

Spring should be here so to kick things off here are the challenges for April, a gentle start to ease into it. Challenge the club, challenge your friends, challenge your riding group, or challenge yourself., it’s just for fun, and maybe bragging rights 😆

I have got Simon Warrens 100 greatest climbs and climbs of Yorkshire, so I will be raiding those for ideas!

Club challenges for April.

Log your rides on the club strava page, and/or post rides up here, take photos for bragging rights, have fun 🙂

So the challenges, there are plenty to choose from, do them all or just pick the ones you want to try.
