Registration for this year's Challenge is now open - we hope you will join us for three unforgettable days of cycling adventure, camaraderie and charitable fundraising. For 2024, teams of 4 will ride 561 miles in relay through Brittany's awe-inspiring coastline, taking in beautiful countryside, quaint villages and the odd ascent... for good measure!
 

Get involved
The cost of entry is £1,600 per team of 4 (£400 p/person).  Enter and pay in full for your team before 31st May and get £100 off of your team’s entry fee. If you've previously ridden in one of our Challenges and bring a new team for the Brittany Challenge, your team will get a refund of another £100.


You can make a difference
Since 1996, Challenge Adventure Charities has riased £4,664,058 for national charities and hundreds of personally nominated charities on behalf of our riders.  To participate in this year's Challenge, riders have to raise a minimum of £1,500 sponsorship per team.  100% of sponsorship will be donated to charity - 50% going to Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation and the remaining 50% to teams' nominated charities.
