What is the Ride the Kilo Challenge?

The Ride the Kilo Challenge is quite simple really; we have a turbo trainer and television programmed in to the final km of the Col du Tourmalet at both our Whitwell and Grafham stores. Simply come along to one of the stores and try and beat the time that has been set by our staff and other customers alike.

How do I enter?

It's completely FREE to enter the 'Ride the Kilo Challenge'.

Simply come along to our Whitwell or Grafham store and speak to a member of staff. They will inform you of the current leading time and set you up on the bike. When they say go...start pedalling.


We're a generous bunch here at Rutland Cycling.

As it's the Tour de France (and we LOVE the Tour de France) We are giving away a set of Oakley Radarlock Path Mark Cavendish Signature Sunglasses worth £204.99 to the overall winner. Our generosity does not end there; we are also giving away prizes for the winner at the end of every week!
