Cykelnerven is a cycling event that takes riders along the Tour de France route just months before the official race

Cycling the Tour de France mountains

We are now taking inerets for Cykelnerven 2019!

Cykelnerven is only for the toughest riders. No first time cyclists, no wicker baskets, no surrender!

Cykelnerven is Danish for the nerve to ride. It is a unique and customized cycling experience where you will be racing the famous Tour de France mountains just a few weeks before the professionals.

You will ride 355km with your peloton, over the toughest mountain climbs of this year’s Tour de France. Everything else will be taken care of, you just need to push yourself to your cycling limits. And every turn of the crank will bring us a step closer to a world without MS and you a step closer to greatness.

The event is organised by the Danish MS Society and working with the MS International Federation, we have now opened the event for international riders.
