Camping and Caravanning Club Challenge

Thank you for visiting our page!

With the world’s greatest cycling race coming to Britain in 2014, The Camping and Caravanning Club is celebrating its cycling heritage and the ‘Year of the Bike’ by announcing its cycle-camp challenge.

The initiative has been launched by the Club’s first female Club President and television presenter, Julia Bradbury at The Caravan & Camping Show at the NEC, Birmingham.

Cycling is an activity that is frequently enjoyed by campers on Club Sites across the whole of the UK and is also inextricably linked with the Club’s history.

Its founding member, Thomas Hiram-Holding, was himself a cycle-camper and established a Club that has expanded from just six members in 1901, to more than half a million enthusiastic campers and caravanners over a century later.

And so, to celebrate its heritage, a team from the Club will take on a six-day cycling challenge during National Camping and Caravanning Week (Monday, 26 May to Sunday 1 June).

Starting at Wantage, the site of the Club’s inaugural meeting, the cycle-campers will ride up the country, taking in key points of the UK leg of the world’s greatest cycling race, pitching up at Club Sites, Certificated Sites and Club Meets along the way.

And in true Club spirit, all of the riders undertaking ‘The Challenge’ have agreed to wear traditional cycling clothing, like Hiram-Holding and friends, throughout the six days – think tweed, bloomers and breeches!

Julia Bradbury will lead the riders over the finishing line at the Club’s National Camping and Caravanning Week event at its Scarborough campsite on Friday, 30 May.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
