April 27th, 2015

At Ride25 we focus on international cycling holidays and adventures, we do organise a single one day Ride25 Tour de Yorkshire (invite only) event annually, which was last weekend.  Check out the gallery if you want to see the pics.  We don’t plan on organising any more and want to keep focused on cycling to Sydney.  However, we have been asked many times by our riders which events they should be doing as training for a Ride25… so here is a solution… Iconic Cycling Events our new partner.

Ride25 are delighted to be partnering with Iconic Cycling Events (ICE) who have a number of fantastic sportive events around the UK.  These rides are ideal for preparation  and training for your Ride25 Cycling Holiday/Adventure.  For more information about their events please visit their the Iconic Cycling Events website HERE

They have events all over the UK and all have various distances (usually shorter, medium and long), fantastic feed stations, scenic routes, great post-event atmosphere.  They are as close to a one day Ride25 as you can get.

If you do book one – please mention Ride25 and were your Ride25 jersey with pride when you take part.  The Ride25 crew will be at all these events so if you have any questions come along and ask us or just pop over and have a chat.Iconic Cycling Group 2
