The RACE (Race across Europe) is a once-in-a-lifetime cycling event featuring the very best of riding in Europe for supported and semi-supported teams and unsupported solos and pairs. This event requires exceptional teamwork, stamina, energy, strategy and humour to succeed. Don’t let ‘race’ put you off though. If you cycle in a supported team this challenge is achievable by most people. Those who finish can proudly say that they competed in, and completed, what we think is one of the hardest cycling events on earth. It is not just about the cyclists either, this event allows even those with no interest in cycling to take part through acting as support crew to the cyclists, driving vehicles, navigating, cooking and boosting morale etc. The support crew are critical to the success of the cyclists and in many ways have the harder challenge and gain just as much by way of a major life achievement as anyone on a bike. It is truly a team event for everyone!

Riders enter solo or in teams of 2, 4, 6 or 8 with a full support crew in follow vehicles and camper vans. You can either organise your own support crew or delegate this to Greenrock. Cyclists and their crews set off from Boulogne-sur-Mer to Gibraltar along the route set by Greenrock, carrying a satellite tracking device which transmits the rider’s position every 5 minutes. Cyclists will need to ride day and night to reach Tarifa within the time limit.


This category is for those who don’t have the time to find big support crews and who plan to cycle solo or in a pair. This new category allows cyclists to enter with 1 vehicle as support and as few as 1 support crew member. The vehicle and the support crew member’s job is to scout ahead arranging rest and feed stops and generally keeping an eye on the cyclist, ensuring they are safe, heading the right way, well fed and watered and rested.


Solo & pairs unsupported cyclists will have to follow the established route and a specific set of rules has been designed for their challenge.
