Corporate Sportive Event Organiser
Specialists in the field of Cycling Challenges, Adventure Café offer tours across the UK, Europe and worldwide. In addition to rides with professional cycle leaders, we also offer waymarked timed sportive events, which are ideally suited to Corporate Events. Both employees and clients alike will enjoy a well planned and executed challenge. With venues across the South of England to choose from, including venues suitable for large numbers of participants with event catering.

We are proud of our event leadership team who will ensure your riders are carefully looked after, given careful briefings and supported with great feed stations, and the best mechanical support. Our events are tailor made to suit your requirements, and any destinations mentioned are just indicative. We can even offer sportives across the water in northern France and Belgium.

What is a Level 3.0 Cycling Challenge Like?
These rides are typically multi day rides, with medium distances and undulating terrain. Level 3 rides suit riders who ride regularly, and are looking for something challenging but manageable. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 8 hours of cycling with breaks. In the case of a multi day ride, you can expect a slightly lower daily duration - but of course - the effort is sustained over a longer period. You should be a competent rider, with regular training outings - both at the weekend and ideally with another session during the week. A 10 week training programme is available for our 3 star rides.
How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Bike Ride’?
You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing long bike rides in the countryside of 5 hours + and distances of between 45 - 55 miles . You should be doing regular exercise - with some serious cycle training (at least twice per week in the run up to the event). Your typical comfortable cycling speed will be around 21-23 km/hr on flat and gently undulating terrain, and you should be able to cycle at higher speed for up to 1 hour or 25 km (on a road bike). You may also blend in other types of exercise - but for longer periods of time (ie sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs.) - however cycling is the best preparation (obviously!)

Our knowledge and hazard identification has been a consolidation of years of cycling and adventure challenge management experience, and something we are very proud of.
