2016 Cycle Challenge

Another successful and more challenging day for the RTPI Cycle ride this year, many thanks to those who helped put the day together, we would be unable to make this event possible without your input!   In a departure from previous year's formats, this years ride took in some of the sights (and hills) of County Durham.

Some of the greats comments received, "The event was fantastic and well organised. An opportunity for colleagues to collaborate and support each other through an enduring event"  "I thought the cycle challenge was good fun" and "Really enjoyed the day, I think the route was better than last year – more variety along the way"...

Put next years date in your diary now, Friday 19th May 2017 with more details to follow!
