Right then, new year, new challenge.
For 2013 I present the Road.cc Tourist Trophy - ride in a different county each month of the year.
Basically an excuse to travel round this country and remind ourselves how beautiful it is, visit some places you’ve always wanted to go, and maybe see far-flung friends you’ve been meaning to ride with for ages.
The rules are pretty simple – aim to ride in a different county every month of 2013.
You’re not allowed to count your home county as a tick for a month.
You can start from your home county and ride into a neighbouring one, but only to claim a maximum of two counties so that those within striking distance of many aren’t at an unfair advantage.
You’re allowed one Wild Card foreign destination for a month should you be lucky enough to travel overseas. A ride must be what you would normally class as a proper ride and not just a quick spin round the car-park to claim a county. A race will count as a ride.
There won’t be a trophy. Maybe just some socks.
Sign up and send a postcard each month below.
