Every month we set our CW5000 riders two challenges, each one designed to mix up someone's riding, and help inspire them to get out and closer to the 5,000 mile target. 

Everesting was a big challenge during lockdown as the British and outright record for the challenge got beaten over and over. But while the record attempts have backed off since last year, it's still a fun cycling challenge.
