13th - 19th April 2018 This bike week will offer many challenges and unforgettable experiences in the saddle. We cater for both men and women who are regular cyclists, including those training for one of the many bike races throughout Europe.
The routes will vary both in length and difficulty, taking you to the far south, through the fascinating Fire Mountains and up to the north. You will have the opportunity to challenge yourself with steep climbs, covering a variety of terrain and facing strong winds in the warm climate. We will be riding between 50km and 100km per day, equivalent to 2.5-5 hours - over the course of the week you will cover around 350km. On the long rides (Sunday and Thursday), there will be catering in the form of fruit, sandwiches, water and cola. Each day, both during and after the tour, we will give advice on setting up the bike, riding in groups, riding in mountainous terrain, etc (talks will be in Danish). To participate in the week you will need a road bike with the following gearing: 39/42 and 24/26 on the rear.
