Join the ultimate endurance cycle challenge with Scope. It's not a race but an extreme sportive with riders pedalling through the day and night in fully supported pelotons attempting to reach the French capital before lunch - 24 hours later.
"Welcome to the Best of British – RCUK's guide to the very best road cycling Great Britain has to offer.
We’re starting our tour of Great Britain in the north west of England – home to some of the steepest climbs in the country, with towering views and near traffic-free roads – and have handpicked four iconic routes, covering the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Trough of Bowland and North Pennines.
We’ve ridden each route and have been blown away by the sheer beauty, challenge and variety of riding - now we want to inspire you to do the same.
