On 27th November 22, Mark and Karl took part in The Pedal Revolution's first of three 'Winter Series' cycling challenges. Departing and finishing at Whittlington Country Park in Norwich, they rode 25-miles through glorious Norfolk Countryside on a cold, but dry day.  A cycling Sportive is not a race but a mass participation event.  The next event takes place on the 18th December starting and finishing at the same venue.  If you would like to join in, then just contact a member of staff; we would love to hear from you.
