ride2monaco will be the 3rd ride2 Cycling Event, after ride2spa in 2012 and ride2monza in 2014. The previous two events have been pretty epic, and this one should be a worthy 'Part 3' to the trilogy.

There's is nothing official about the event, we're just a group of friends who like cycling and F1 and getting together and seeing how far we can push ourselves, whilst raising money and awareness for worthy causes.

ride2105 - ride2monaco - Charity Cycle Ride

This is Day 1 of the challenge, Friday 20th May 2016, cycling just over 105 miles in 1 Day!

We'll start at Silverstone at around 7.30am, and head south towards Portsmouth. If you've ever cycled 100 miles in day, you'll know how hard this will be, and definitely worth a few quid in sponsorship too.

There will be a lunch stop mid-day to refuel and get the water bottles filled, with the aim of arriving at Portsmouth by late afternoon.
