Berry Challenge Cycling Event Details

So join us for the choice of two spectacular rides with a relaxed lunch at our favourite Berry hangout ‘Il locale’.

Note this is a free ride, and an excuse for riders new and returning to catch up. We look forward to welcoming you to our neighbourhood! However, please register below so we can manage numbers both for riding, snacks and lunch. You will only need to pay individually for lunch at Il locale.

Training for a Bike Odyssey

We will support you to ride any speed you like and with our days being broken up with relaxed coffees and picnic lunches there are no expectations to ride at a certain speed, nor ride as a group. However, what is usually most taxing for riders is spending extended time sitting on the bicycle. Therefore, the more you can prepare your body for that the better. So the key thing is to ride consistently to prepare for your Odyssey.

What is happening in Europe?

We all can’t wait to be back on the bike exploring the world.

For some (our US and UK riders) this will be sooner rather than later as they head off on Odyssey in just over a month’s time.

Even from lockdown in Australia, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Covid Travel Update July 2021

Beyond having an amazing experience on and off the bike, both your and our European team’s health and safety are our primary concerns.

Our European team is led by Bruno Ramain, the tour leader for both Venetians and Othello. Bruno is a magnificent veteran guide who just returned from pre touring Morocco last week (for Venetian riders you can read the email we sent post this pretour below). He is currently taking a custom group from the USA following the Tour de France. Life is almost back to normal in Europe and North Africa!
