CONQUER THE MOST EPIC CLIMBS IN EUROPE

Band of Climbers Escapes are expertly planned cycling trips and events that allow you to experience the pain, the suffering and the incredible joy from conquering the high mountains and hills of Europe. From single day Sportives and Gran Fondo's through to week long Escapes, we're building an event calendar to test your legs across Europe.

SINGLE DAY EVENTS

Challenge yourself on some of the hilliest, toughest events in the UK, designed, route tested and run by Band of Climbers.

RAID THE PENNINES

Raid The Pennines is a one day, self supported adventure cycling event from Band of Climbers. Your challenge is to traverse nine checkpoints placed around the Pennines. Those checkpoints are the summits of nine of Pennines toughest climbs, and the UK's highest roads. Collect the codes at each checkpoint to complete the raid.

THE TOUGHEST 100

The Band of Climbers Toughest 100 is a one day sportive that will take place near Sheffield in August 2024. We've tweaked the 2023 route, added a brand new, much bigger start and finish venue, and included a monster XL route which makes this the hilliest Sportive in the UK with almost 5000m of climbing in the 100 mile route.

    I've now completed 5 of the BoC Escapes since 2019 and I'll be back in 2023 for 2 more. You could not wish for a better week on a bike.
