Clock 20 hours in the saddle this month for your chance to win some awesome prizes.

Spring is officially here and for triathletes everywhere the warmer weather and longer days signal a certain delightful milestone in the annual calendar; you no longer need to spend endless mind-numbing hours on the turbo trainer and can actually get out and enjoy the freedom of the road – hopefully without the threat of snow storms! At this time of year it’s important to build up endurance and fitness, so long slow rides are the order of the day. To help you get back into the swing of things, we have dedicated this month’s challenge to cycling.

All you have to do to is clock 20 hours in the saddle before the end of the month…

As always, how you do it is up to you – we don’t care if you’re a cycling lunatic that wants to thrash out 20 hours in the saddle in one go, or whether you want to take things a little easier and just do an hour every few days until the end of the month.

Each one of you that successfully hits the 20 hour target will be entered into the prize draw and stand a chance of winning some top of the range helmets from Lazer.

Spot prizes

We are also going to be awarding spot prizes for:

  • The longest individual ride logged.
  • The most miles cycled.
