Why not join the OutdoorLads team on this closed road, third party Sportive event. Pricing and some details of this event are still to be released by the providers. Please sign up at www.velonorth.com for updates and the final details of timings and location. Please be aware this event may sell out fairly fast.
Enter the team name OutdoorLads (with capital O and L) when signing up and the organisers will try to put us in the same start waves for the 100 mile and 50 mile, though this is not guaranteed. Choose which ride you want to do according to your ability.
Please note as a third party event there will be no formal OutdoorLads event leader, and we will likely be riding as a number of small sub groups on the day based on ability, not as one group. That said many of our leaders will be riding and we will stick together where possible.
Please do wear your Outdoorlads branded kit if you have it. A new summer jersey kit order will be starting soon, ideal for this sort of event. If you sign up for this event you'll get updates from us on how to order.
