Deloitte Ride Across Britain 2013 Dates Announced

by Henry Peacock

Threshold Sports today announced that the 2013 Deloitte Ride Across Britain (Deloitte RAB) will run from 8th - 16th June 2013, travelling from John O'Groats to Land's End. In its fourth edition, riders with only four or five days spare can still experience the breathtaking beauty and unique camaraderie of the UK's largest, 'end to end' Ride by choosing a Scotland or England package.

The UK's Largest 'End-To-End'

Cycling the length of the UK is on every cyclists to do list and for many people it is not a question of if they will complete the challenge, but when. Lots of people choose to plan and ride the 'end to end' carrying their equipment. Nick Tuppen, Head of Threshold Events explains; "We are proud of the extreme lengths we take to support our riders. On Deloitte RAB there is no lugging heavy kit, no need for complex route planning and no worry of where you will sleep each night. Our crew of over 150 ensures that when your bike, body or stomach begins to grumble, we are there with exactly what you need, when you need it."

There Are Four Tailored Packages To Choose From

Unlike most end-to-end rides, Deloitte RAB doesn't choose the shortest route. Riders do a few extra miles each day, but this allows Threshold to find the best riding in the UK. From the majesty of the Scottish Highlands to the rolling hills and valleys of the Peak District, down to the rugged coastline of Cornwall, no other event manages to string so much exceptional cycling together along so many unknown and hidden back roads.

This year there are four packages to choose from: The Full Course Package, the Scotland Package, the England Package and the Team Challenge.The 2013 Ride will open for entries on Wednesday 19th September 2012, two days after the end of this year's Ride. However, if riders register interest in advance they will be e-mailed a link to enter 2 hours before the main site opens and will have first crack at the early bird offer of £150 off the full course entry fee. They will also get updated with all the latest news from Deloitte RAB 2012 as it happens and so they can see just what is in store for them in 2013.

Smiles All Round

There are also some final places up for grabs for Deloitte RAB 2012 so if riders want to join us on the 8th September 2012 they should e-mail for the latest availability. Or visit
