Bergen Cycling Club (Bergen CK) in Norway invites you to take part in the 170 KM cycling road race from Bergen to Voss. The race is a gruelling physical challenge and an emotional rollercoaster ride aided by the stunning natural beauty of Western Norway and the Hardangerfjord. 

Each year cyclists of all abilities take part in this unique race, each with different goals and expectations. Whether you want to win the race, improve on last year's time, stay with the peloton or just reach the end, there is a starting group for you. To ensure the safety of the participants, the fastest groups start first followed by the slower ones. It is therefore important to set yourself realistic goals, and to ensure you don't start in a group that is too far above or below your level, otherwise you may find yourself completing the majority of the race on your own. 

The terrain of The West Country ClassicÂ" contains a number of climbs, the longest and most gruelling of which are Gullbotn, Kvamskogen and Skjervet.That is not to say that the remaining climbs are easy. Far from it!! The course is littered with smaller climbs of varying steepness and length, each stretching the rider mentally and physically, emphasising the need to eat and drink sensibly prior to and during the race.

Participation in The West Country Classic has traditionally been local, with a few exceptions in the last couple of years. In 2010 over 4000 cyclists took part, and this year more than 5000 took part. We would like to offer you the opportunity to challenge yourself by participating in this unique annual event. So get training, and we hope to see you in the peloton!!

As regards travel to and from Bergen, you can fly directly from many european cities. There are also ferry conections to Bergen. This is a wonderful opportunity for you, and your family, to take part in a unique cycling experience whilst exploring the unparalleled beauty of Norway.
