About this event

The BDOVELO John O’Groats to Land’s End Challenge is a new event designed to demonstrate how active our BDOVELO community is and have a little fun at the same time.


Our current ride programme is now postponed until 2021 due to Covid 19 but is replaced by this scenic John O'Groats to Land's End ride which will track individual's mileage (your MARKER) as well as that of Team BDOVELO.(A consolidation of everyone's mileage with a BDOVELO MARKER).


To take part, register your own personal rides until the end of 2020 using the Map my Tracks website and App (details below). Please remember to follow the current cycling advice.


As rides are completed and recorded your "MARKER" will show where you and our BDOVELO team is along the 1,200 mile route.
