New for 2016, the Black Series is UK Cycling Events toughest road series’ yet.
The NEW Black Series is designed to test your stamina and show your friends what you’re made of. Aimed at the more experienced and accomplished riders, the three new routes – through Cornwall , Scarborough and Wales – will test you both physically and mentally as you tackle the long miles and extreme elevations, in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK. There is no qualifying measure in place to enter this series, but they will be enforcing strict cut-off times at every feed station to make sure each rider is keeping pace, if you fall behind they’ll give you a boost and drop you off a bit further up the course.
Unlike their other events, each of the Black Series rides only has one route, with a capacity for 600 riders. Starting at a minimum distance of 120 miles and with leg-pumping elevations of 10,000ft upwards, preparation for these rides is highly recommended.
If ever there was a chance to display your true grit, the Black Series is it. If you don’t think you’re up to it, all we can say […]
