FOR LOVERS OF DROPPED BARS, PAVED ROADS, BYWAYS AND GRAVEL TRACK ADVENTURES.
We’re delighted to be supporting the Rapha Road Bike Session along with Cannondale at this year’s Kendal Mountain Festival. On the back of the success of the long established (Mountain) Bike Night, KMF have launched this dedicated road session with new partner Rapha for the 2019 Mountain Festival.
Headlined by guest speaker Lachlan Morton (World Tour Pro with EF Education First) and with a special guest appearance from Emily Chappell (ultra-endurance cyclist), the session will be presented by Harry Dowdney from Rapha. Lachlan will be talking about his experiences racing an ‘Alternative Calendar’ in 2019, which included taking part in events such as GDDuro, Dirty Kanza and the 3 Peaks Cyclocross race in Yorkshire. Emily’s second book ‘Where There’s A Will’ is due for release in early November and we’ll receive an insight into the world of ultra endurance racing and how she went from London cycle courier to winning The Transcontinental – a self-supported endurance race across Europe.
The session gets underway at 14:15 on Saturday 16th November at Kendal Leisure Centre and tickets are now available. There will also be a special ride out from the Leisure Centre on the morning of the event which we’ll be supporting along with Cannondale and Rapha, who’ll be bringing their specialist coffee van.
