Cykelnerven is Europe’s most unique and challenging charity cycle event. Each year seasoned riders from around the world take on over 400km of the toughest climbs from the Tour de France just 1 week before the official race. It’s the ride that every cyclist dreams of, but only the toughest can complete.

Our ride takes you over 5 of the steepest mountains from the Tour. You get a dedicated support team, English speaking coaches, personalised briefs and you get to be part of a 300-strong Cykelnerven team.

And, most importantly, every turn of the wheel moves us closer to a world without MS.
