Brian Robinson Challenge Ride
The Brian Robinson Challenge Ride is a tough 70 mile cycle circuit which offers riders the opportunity to tackle in the climb of Holme Moss, which was an early climb in the 2014 Tour Of France when the race visited Yorkshire.
The 2016 & 2017 editions of the popular Brian Robinson Challenge ride, which was once again hosted at the Huddersfield New College campus, supported a very worthy cause, the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
This year’s event, on 29th April 2018, will once again featured a closed road roll out for all riders to start en masse, and for those who haven’t ridden before, this means that there will be about 12 miles without having to make a turn as the route rolls over the first Pennine climb at Buckstone’s Moor before dropping to Lancashire and back into Yorkshire over the Standedge.
We raise money to support our beneficiaries through rider entries, but of course you are free and welcome to raise more, or donate, should you wish as we try and keep costs down in today’s spiralling events market.
We were hoping for reasonable weather, though being the Pennines snow has made an appearance on Holme Moss before.
Thanks for your interest and participation in this event in the past and I hope to see you all again this year, Safe Cycling
