Our aim through 2020 is simple — to inspire you to ride. Ride more, ride further, ride faster, it doesn’t really matter, we’ll be doing everything we can to get you out on your bikes.

In order to do this we’re launching a brand new challenge for 2020, and it’s something I’m really excited about. We’re challenging all of you to ride 5,000 miles. You can join via our website and start logging your miles straight away. But we’re not just setting you that one target. Throughout the year we’ll launch a range of smaller challenges, innovations, events and products to keep you motivated for the next 12 months.

Go to to sign up and get involved. The challenge is free to take part in and has one simple aim — to get you out riding your bike.

I’ve already signed up, and in all honesty am a little worried about reaching that total. But even if I don’t achieve it, it’s going to be fun trying. Through the year we’ll bring you training and fitness advice that will help you achieve your goals, as well as new and inspiring routes to help you rack up the miles.

I can’t wait to get going.
