Our ode to the last great madness of cycling, A Day in Hell challenges you to take on your toughest backroads and bridleways, in our homage to the road to Roubaix. Find a route and see if you handle the pavé like the pros.
Inspired by the Queen of the Classics, this April we’re bringing a taste of the race to a route near you. With the chance to put your endurance to the test, our Ride Leaders have used their expert local knowledge to curate rides reminiscent of the French cobbled classic, but with their own unique flavour. To take part and discover the best, and worst, of your nearby roads, download your self-supported route and enjoy a hell of a weekend.
For RCC members, being part of the world's biggest cycling club means you’re never far from a friendly group ride with fellow clubmates. For A Day in Hell, you’ll be able to get all the latest updates on your local led rides, race recommendations and any checkpoint challenges via the RCC app.Check The App
