Win a place on the Fred Whitton Challenge with MuleBar
They've got two to give away if you Like them on facebook...

The Fred Whitton Challenge is one of the founding fathers of the modern sportive scene. It's been running since before they were called sportives, and its 112-mile parcours takes in some of the toughest climbs in the UK including the legendary 30% wall that is Hardknott Pass. It's popular, too, and sold out now for this year, but MuleBar have two places up for grabs if you don't have a ride but would still love to go.

To enter, all you need to do is head over to the MuleBar facebook page and Like it, then go to the Fred Whitton Challenge story and follow the instructions. Easy! Winners will be announce on Tuesday 8 May. Good luck!

If you want to know what it's like to ride the Fred Whitton, here's Dave's ride report from 2011.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Cracking picture! Of course, it could never do the ferocity of those hills justice.
