Alsace Relay Cycle Challenge

CRASH IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE A BRAND NEW CYCLING EVENT FOR THOSE SERIOUS ABOUT CYCLING – BUT DEADLINE FOR ENTRY IS 30th June 2017 SO DON’T DELAY!!

The Event:

We’re offering up to 10 CRASH Charity teams of four the chance to embark on a 550 mile relay-cycle challenge through the beautiful French countryside, raising vital funds for CRASH and our work creating places that care for people.

As a team you can choose how you wish to complete the route; you may want to share the responsibility with each team member cycling an equal distance,  alternatively some team-members can take on a greater share of the route than others depending on ability. It’s entirely up to you!

The CRASH Charity teams will join 200 fellow cycle enthusiasts for an adventure of a life time. Teams from commercial property, builders’ merchants and contractor sectors have already confirmed their 2017 places and we’d love you to take part!

The Route:

Arriving in Arras on the evening of Wednesday 27th September, you will head South the next morning through many of the battlefields of the First World War towards your first night in the heart of the Champagne area in Épernay.

Day 2 will take you first round the Montaigne de Rhiems before heading East across the Chalons plains, around Verdun to Nancy for your second night in this splendid city, close to the Place Stanislas.

On the last day you will head South into the Vosges mountains to another Tour de France climb – The Planche des Belles Filles – and then North through the Vosges to the magic of Riquewihr.

Event Dates: Thursday 28th September – Sunday 1st October

Cost: £1,440 per team, plus a minimum team sponsorship target of £1,000 for CRASH Charity

What’s Included:

  • 3 nights half board accommodation on route
  • 1 extra night in Arras B&B
  • Marshall road support

Teams are required to organise their own travel to Arras and back home following the event. Each participant must also ensure they have sufficient travel insurance to cover health, baggage and equipment.
