This new award is to celebrate the touring adventures our club members have had in this club year (1st October 15 to 30th September 16) This could include:

  • Epic journeys like John O’Groats to Lands End
  • Trips around Alpine areas to bag the iconic cols
  • Gentle cycling along local Sustrans routes such as the Way of the Roses

This award is not about miles or time taken, it is about the cycling experience on a multi-day ride event. To enter for the award please submit a short interesting summary (max 1,000 words) about your tour along with photos of you, your bike and the best view on your tour. Pictures of your Otley top in interesting places will also be appreciated.

All entries will be featured on our club website to inspire others and the entry that is considered the most inspiring and entertaining will be chosen as our winner by our Grand Tour Award panel. The selected winner will be awarded our new Grand Tour Rider Award at the Club’s Award Dinner on January 20th 2017.

To enter for the award please submit the following details by 30th November 2016 to our award co-ordinator: Rachel Crowther
We also would welcome volunteers with experience/interest in touring to join the small judging panel.
