A Cycling Challenge of ‘Colossus’ Proportions

3rd February 2015

Find out a little bit more about Colossus, our 500km team cycling challenge.


Colossus is designed for cyclists who are after a team cycling event ‘with a bit of a difference’.

In a nutshell, it’s a 24 hour, non-stop, team challenge; starting at Pendennis Point in Falmouth, Cornwall, and finishing in the centre of London the next morning.

The route is just under 312 miles (500km) long, and takes in some of the very best parts of the British countryside. It closely follows the historical route taken by Lieutenant Lapenotière in 1805 as he travelled post chaise (via a horse drawn coach) to deliver news of the death of Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Following the routes of our Britannia, Conqueror and Victory rides COMBINED - this is an event like no other.

So rally up your friends and family - and book in for a cycling challenge this year!
