Now celebrating its 15th year the Viking Challenge: Attracts over 1,000 riders from all over the country, and is one of the UK's largest amateur off road cycle events, we have raised over £250,000 for the school and our charity partners since it began in 1995. The challenge needs over 100 volunteers to run and man the event on the day, we require nearly 5,000 cakes, bananas and sandwiches to keep cyclists fuelled up on the way round!
The event Is open to everyone, young and old, teams and individuals, both serious and fun cyclists - and Vikings! The combination of the serious physical challenge with our warm hospitality has proven to be a winning formula; with riders and volunteers coming back year after year. Taking in the fabulous Vale of Belvoir countryside riders have access to terrain not usually accessible to the general public and with lots of well-stocked refuelling stops along the way – our cakes are almost as famous as the challenge itself – it really is a unique cycling experience.
