GR20 – the GigRower 20 club bike charity challenge.
With many Gig Rowers keen riders as well we thought it might be a bit of fun to organise a Gig Rower bike ride in the winter, a chance to get out the gym and away from the gigs for some alternative training, a bit of fun, a good social and a way to raise some funds for a local charity with worldwide reach.
It’s called a challenge for good reason, the full 2 day, 130 mile GR20 route is by no means an easy ride and should only be attempted by experienced riders, but don’t worry for those less experienced we have some ‘fun options’ to help you get involved with the GR12 (12 clubs & 51 miles) & GR8 (8 clubs & 40 miles).
The route has been planned to take in as many clubs as possible, avoid main roads and take in the Cornish coast as riders head west. Do not expect a flat ride as the route takes in a good number of good old Cornish hills diving in and out of creeks, harbours and inlets.
It is NOT a race …
In 2009 the first GR20 took place in November and we are planning to run it again later in 2010 so watch this space for more info.
